Transferring Existing Domain

When you sign up as a transfer account with Bluehost, we only create the account on our servers for you to use. You will need to upload all of your files, create your email accounts, databases, etc. We do not try to transfer the domain to Bluehost as the registrar automatically. If you would like Bluehost to take over as the registrar of your domain, please let us know (we can transfer .com, .net, .org, .info, .us, and .biz domains). Otherwise your domain will remain solely your responsibility.

Please note that expired domain cannot be transferred. New domains less than 60 days old can be pointed to our servers, but we cannot take over the registration during the first 60 days.

You will also need to login to your current registrar and change the DNS to the following nameservers:

NS1.BLUEHOST.COM
NS2.BLUEHOST.COM

Or for Reseller Account Owners you will need to use:

NS1.RHOSTBH.COM
NS2.RHOSTBH.COM

Then allow 24 to 48 hours for your changes to take effect. If you need help changing the nameservers with a specific Registrar, click on the Registrar Name for detailed instructions:
