- If your nameservers are pointed to ns1.Bluehost.com and ns2.Bluehost.com, you may simply enter your domain name.
- If your nameservers are not pointed to us, please use the IP address you received in your introductory email message.
- For the Username - It can be found by visiting the FTP Accounts section of the control panel. Please note that your username may contain "@domain.com," where domain.com is your domain name.
- For the Password - Enter your FTP password. Please note If you are using the default FTP username, the password is your control panel password.
