The custom domain name feature allows you to setup your Weebly site with a domain name you've already registered through GoDaddy. The changes we request are simple, but it can be a rather frustrating task if you don't have any experience with editing your domain records. We recommend that you register your domain through Weebly if you are looking to buy a new domain.
Log in to GoDaddy and go to My Account.
Expand your DOMAINS section, find the domain you want to use with your site, and click Launch.
Select the DNS Zone File tab.
You'll see a whole mess of settings on the next page. But you need only change one or two records.
Start by clicking the Edit button in upper left.
Then change the "@" record at the very top. Scroll over it and click the pen / paper icon to edit it.
Enter one of our IP Addresses in the provided box. Our IP Addresses are 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124. You can use whichever of these you feel like using. They all function the same way and they all work properly. If you find this confusing, just use the 126.96.36.199 IP.
After you've entered the IP Address, click out of the box. Then make sure the "www" CNAME record points to @. If it doesn't, scroll over it, click the pencil icon, and enter @.
Almost done! All that remains to be done is clicking the Save Zone File button in the upper right.
It can take GoDaddy up to 24 hours to update their records with your change (though they're generally pretty speedy about it, so it should only take a few). Nothing is happening on our side when you point a domain here so there isn't anything we can do to speed this up.
