Can I Use a GoDaddy Domain on Webflow?

If you have purchased a domain from GoDaddy and want to use it with Webflow, the good news is that it is indeed possible. Webflow allows you to connect your GoDaddy domain to your Webflow site effortlessly. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of using your GoDaddy domain on Webflow.

Step 1: Accessing Your Domain Settings in GoDaddy

The first step is to log in to your GoDaddy account and navigate to the Domain Management section. Once there, locate the domain you want to use with Webflow and click on it.

Pro Tip: If you have multiple domains, ensure that you select the correct one for your Webflow site.

Now that you are on the domain settings page, scroll down until you find the “Nameservers” section.

Step 2: Update Nameservers

In order for your GoDaddy domain to work with Webflow, you need to update the nameservers. By default, GoDaddy uses their own nameservers for your domain. We need to change them to point towards Webflow’s nameservers.

Note: Changing nameservers may temporarily affect any existing services associated with your domain such as email or other website builders. Make sure you have alternative arrangements in place if needed.

  1. In the “Nameservers” section of your GoDaddy domain settings page, click on “Change”.
  2. Select “Custom” from the drop-down menu.
  3. Add Webflow’s nameservers: and
  4. Click on “Save” to apply the changes.

Once you have updated the nameservers, it may take some time for the changes to propagate across the internet. This process is known as DNS propagation and can take up to 48 hours, although it usually happens much faster.

Step 3: Connecting Your GoDaddy Domain to Webflow

Now that you have updated the nameservers, it’s time to connect your GoDaddy domain to your Webflow site.

  1. In your Webflow dashboard, navigate to the “Hosting” tab.
  2. Click on “Add Custom Domain”.
  3. Enter your GoDaddy domain in the provided field and click on “Next”.
  4. You will be prompted with instructions for verifying your domain ownership. Follow them carefully and complete the verification process.
  5. Once verified, Webflow will automatically set up SSL for your domain, ensuring secure connections.
  6. Finally, click on “Publish” to make your Webflow site live with your GoDaddy domain!

Note: It may take a few minutes for the changes to propagate after publishing. During this time, you may see a temporary Webflow subdomain when accessing your site. Rest assured that it will soon display your GoDaddy domain once DNS propagation is complete.

In Conclusion

Using a GoDaddy domain on Webflow is a seamless process that involves updating nameservers and connecting your domain within the Webflow dashboard. By following these steps, you can successfully leverage the power of both platforms – enjoying GoDaddy’s reliable domain services and Webflow’s intuitive website building capabilities.

Remember to be patient during the DNS propagation period, and soon enough, your GoDaddy domain will be fully functional with your Webflow site. Happy designing!
