1. Fix Did Not Get Any Results For Domain Error Steps.

The domain’s current name server is CloudFlare name server. If you want to map the domain to a fixed static ip address, you can change the domain’s name server to use BlueHost’s owned name server. Then you can change the A record ( domain to ip mapping record ) in BlueHost zone editor.

But before you can add / edit A record in BlueHost zone editor, you should first wait for some time to let the DNS name server change spread to all the DNS server all over the world.

If the DNS name server change propagation process are not completed successfully, and you add A record in BlueHost zone file, then you will get the error message.

So what you can do is just to wait, or you can read article How To Know If DNS Propagation Is Complete to monitor the DNS name server change propagation status. When the DNS name server change propagation process complete, you can edit the A record in BlueHost’s zone editor.
