Good question!
Since I usually have this one wrong, I'll attempt an answer and wait for somebody to correct me.

Good morning: from dawn to midday
Good afternoon: from midday to sunset or sixish [that would be around 6:00 pm]
Good evening: from sunset [or sixish] to bedtime

As I said previously, I often had it wrong. When I was staying in the UK, I often caught myself saying "good morning" at 1-2 pm because where I live it works quite differently. Needless to say, sometimes I received a look of disapproval. Emotion: big smile, so wait for a native's confirmation, ok? Emotion: wink

These definitions sound entirely reasonable to me.
Thanks. Can you tell me the exact time? Then, I can confirm with it.

How about "good night"?

No, because there is no exact time. In the winter when the sun sets at 4:30 in the afternoon, then "good evening" might be appropriate as early as 5 p.m. In the summer, when the sun sets at 9:30, 5 might still be "afternoon."

Six is a reasonable dividing line, if the sun is still up.

I think till 12 Noon is Good Morning

and 12- 4Pm is Good After noon

after 4 Pm is Good Evening.

4 pm is too early for "good evening," even in the winter. The prior suggestion of 6 pm is reasonable.
