Having issues loading your custom domain?
DNS isn’t instant and MAY take up to 48 hours if you’ve changed the nameservers/created a CNAME record on your custom domain to 000webhost correctly.
If you want you can use alternative DNS on your computer along with flushing the DNS cache and browser cache/history/data and this sometimes will allow you to view your custom domain sooner than normal.

Changing domain name usually involves some modifications on your website. Most common are these:
