Connecting custom domain to railway project

Hi all, I am new to using railway and connecting domains and such. I bought a custom domain from Godaddy, let's call it www.mywebsite.com and want to have it so that when people go to that domain, they see the project that I created on railway. I tried going into my project's settings and adding the custom domain and then changing the CNAME to the provided information within my DNS settings in GoDaddy, but this did not work.
Solution:
godaddy does not support root level cnames, you would need to use cloudflare's nameservers

Would that work even if I bought the domain from Godaddy? Or should I get the domain from cloudfare?

yes of course, you just need to use cloudflare's nameservers, then you can use cloudflare to manage dns
