Hi @ireshmadushanka. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! That depends on what you mean. As far as the change occurring in your GoDaddy account, that should only take a few minutes. However, it can take up to 48 hours for the change to fully take effect everywhere on the internet. If you're still having trouble after that time, you can share your domain/nameservers here and someone may be able to offer further advice. You can also get in touch with our customer care team if you think something is wrong within your account.

Hey there @ireshmadushanka,


DNS changes can take anywhere from 24-48 hours to completely process. That being said, most of the time it's done in less than an hour. 


If it's been longer than that, are you getting any sort of error messages when you go to your domain?

Name servers are fine now but something awkward happening When I try to reach site using HTTP it's showing me one site but when I try to reach it using HTTPS it's showing me my previous site. why is that?

Hi @tsedes,


Welcome to the Community!

There are two different issues being discussed in this older thread. Please restate the problem that you are personally having in directing your domain name to a hosting provider. Include the domain (for external lookup) and where your hosting is being provided. Our community members can assist you with more information.
