This tutorial will be useful to you only if you have purchased the domain name from Bluehost (or, if you are making use of the free domain that is made available with Bluehost’s hosting services). When you want to use the domain name in another web host, it’ll come in handy.
If you’re not that familiar with name servers, we shall give you an introduction to name servers first so that you’d be, at least, aware about what you do. In simpler manner, we can name servers the bridge between your domain URL & website content that is stored in a web server. When you want to add a particular domain name into the domain list of a web server, you have to direct your domain name into the Bluehost name servers that have been given by your web host!

First, you have to log into the Control Panel of Bluehost hosting services. Once you have logged in using credentials, it will take only a few seconds to see the fully-fledged, simple and intuitive control panel Bluehost has.
As control panel of Bluehost has been classified into different sections, you have to find the ‘Domains’ section from it and you have to choose ‘Domain Manager’ from the given icons. Clicking on this will lead you to another page.
Here, you can see the list of domains you have purchased using Bluehost. Also, the page will list out domains names that you have got free when you purchased hosting.
Once you have selected the domain name, you have to click on ‘Name Servers’ tab that can be seen on top side.
You can see two options in the Name Servers page — Use Default Name servers and Use Custom Name servers. If you want to use the domain in your own Bluehost server, you can choose the first option.

In the corresponding space, you have to provide the name servers you have got from your web host! Simple as that!
