Hi - I have one site with a URL I purchased through InMotion a while ago, and had no trouble setting it up with Wordpress. I recently purchased a new domain through Google to save a few bucks, and looking to host a new WP site with InMotion. With this one, I can't figure out how to be able to build in WP through InMotion with the Google Domain. I'm pretty sure I need to do something with the DNS, but not sure what I should be doing!

Hello-- you're on the right track! 

With a Google Domain, you just need to click on 'DNS' and select 'Use custom name servers.' Then, just enter the appropriate nameservers for your account

For a Shared Hosting Plan or WordPress Plan, If you have the room on your account, you can add that domain as an add-on and install WordPress with Softaculous

The DNS can take a bit of time to fully propagate, so just keep that in mind. I hope that helps!
