    How to Change DNS for Domain Bought from Google to Bluehost

    I was working on a Client WordPress set up and client already purchased domain from Google and hosting with Bluehost. So I added her domain as an addon domain into her Bluehost hosting and next task was to point DNS to point to Bluehost.

    If you have purchased Domain from Google, changing DNS is little tricky as you need to get into your Domain DNS control and finding it for the first time is not simple.

    In this guide I will be sharing how you can achieve this.

    Login to Google apps Dashboard:

    Login to your Google apps manager using your admin Email and password.  To login to your Google Apps dashboard you can use this link

    https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain.com

    Change domain.com with your actual domain name.

    Once you are logged into your Google Apps Dashboard, click on Domain settings > Domain name > Advanced DNS Settings

    Advanced DNS Settings:

    Once you are inside your advanced DNS settings, you will see your domain login, password and login link to ENOM to access your DNS setting panel. Click on Sign in to DNS console and login with credential provided.

    Change DNS settings:

    Under ENOM dashboard, click on edit and click on custom and add your Bluehost DNS that is:

    • ns1.bluehost.com
    • ns2.bluehost.com

    If your hosting is different, you can change your DNS according to your hosting.

    Hey guys i recently purchased a domain through google for my business. I was wondering if you guys could give me the steps required to point my google domain to wordpress so that I may install Wordpress on it. I heard that you need to change your domain type from a googleapps domain to an actual godaddy domain. Is this true? Also if i do this will i lose my googleapps account?

    You can do that, but enom will stop sending e-mail to your gmail because you can’t change the MX records… it sucks
