You can actually change the nameservers while you're in the process of buying a domain on GoDaddy. You can also set your defaults for all purchases in your profile so that it automatically sets them up to your current host when you add new domain names.


I've never had a nameserver change take 72 hours, though. I know it's standard (like "please allow 28 days for delivery") but all mine have been done in minutes - except one, which took almost an hour.

I know add nameserver when buying domains but most people don't know they use own domain for nameserver all depends on your hosting provider and yes again never takes 72 hours but its best to let people know that might take that amount time.

That's a good guide that, as I don't like the Godaddy control panel at all - it definitely over complicates things. You can also change nameservers when you purchase a domain, but I'm guessing this guide is changing once you've got the domain (i.e. when you change web hosts etc)
