Domains purchased through Godaddy are fully supported on InMotion Hosting servers. To get a Godaddy domain working on your InMotion Hosting server, the nameservers will need to be updated to point the domain to our DNS server, and the domain must be added to your cPanel, if it is not your primary domain. Below are the steps for setting up a domain purchased at Godaddy to point to our nameservers.

Changing the Nameservers at GoDaddy

  1. Log into your account with Godaddy.
    Log into GoDaddy account
  2. Next to Domains, click the green Launch button.
    Domain Settings GD
  3. You will see your domains listed, select the domain you want to update the nameservers for.
    Choose domain in GD domain manager
  4. Next to Nameservers click the Manage link.
    GoDaddy Domain Management
  5. On the Nameserver Settings page, click Custom, then click Enter custom nameservers.
    Enter new NS with GD
  6. The Add Nameserver menu will come up. Fill in both InMotion Hosting nameservers, then click the OK button.
    Nameserver 1: ns.inmotionhosting.com 
    Nameserver 2: ns2.inmotionhosting.com 
    Point GD Domain to IMH
  7. You will then see the nameservers listed, click the Save button.
    Viewing your new NameServers in GD
    You are finished when you see a message stating "Your request has been submitted. Changes may take a few moments to take effect." Set nameservers with GoDaddy

Congratulations, now you know how to update your Nameservers with GoDaddy to point to InMotion Hosting!

I would need the same explanation for Bluehost. It is totally different there and I have no Idea on how to do it :-(

While I do not have a BlueHost account to fully test this, it appears that you need to log into your BlueHost account, click on Domain Manager, select your domain, then click on Nameservers

Thanks for the info!  It is current, and each step was exactly how it works at GoDaddy.
