How to link existing domain name to new netlify website

I created a new netlify website:

now I want to connect my custom domain name ( to this website.

the domain name is hosted by Godaddy, so I replaced Godaddy’s name servers by the netlify name servers.

I did this two days ago, but when I try to surf to I get a page not found error.

Do I need to do something else to couple my domain name to the netlify website?

thanks for your advice,


Hi there,

it looks like your custom domain and your netlify site are actually connected properly, which is great! but you still have a very common “page not found” issue. (if this were a dns issue, you would see a different error)

Did you see this guide yet? This is the best place to start for “Page Not Found” issues.

If you are still seeing issues after following the troubleshooting steps in this guide, please let us know!

thanks Perry, seems to be my bad. I had only pushed a file to the repository. I pushed the rest of the files and now it’s working.
