Delay between purchasing a domain on GoDaddy and going live on Ghost?

Hi there,

I am about to purchase a domain on GoDaddy – which I intend to make the root domain of my Ghost site. I know that on some platforms, i.e. SquareSpace, purchasing a domain separately means enduring a 60-day wait between purchase and it going live on the host platform. Is there any such delay with Ghost? I don’t have 60 days to wait!



Hey @SaleemV. Applying a custom domain on Ghost happens pretty much instantaneously, you’ll just have to wait for your DNS to propagate. There’s some handy documentation on adding your GoDaddy custom domain to Ghost just here

Awesome. Thank you @DavidDarnes for such a fast reply! I’m enthusiastic about Ghost – seems like a great platform.
