Note: If you use the same company for both domains and webhosting then this step is done automatically. This is one advantage of using the same company for both.

To set your nameservers on Godaddy to Bluehost perform the following steps:

1.      Login to your account.

2.      From the home page, click the Domains->My Domains link to open the Domain Manager

4.      Click the “Nameservers” button on the toolbar displayed…
