Our Name Servers (NS)

To host your website and/or manage your domain at Bluehost, you need to use our name servers.

  • ns1.bluehost.com
  • ns2.bluehost.com
Or you can use the name server's IP address:
  • 162.88.60.37
  • 162.88.61.37

Your name servers must be updated with the domain's current registrar (the company your domain is registered with). If your domain is registered here, check out Modifying Name Servers (Registered through Bluehost) for step-by-step instructions. Otherwise, please contact your domain's current registrar for assistance.

Remember, your new DNS settings will begin to propagate as soon as you save your changes. Each ISP updates at a different rate, usually taking 24 - 72 hours to complete worldwide. During this time, your emails will be shut down, and your web traffic will be directed to either the old or new host (name servers), depending on the visitor's ISP.
