Turkish Visa question

I got burned last year by booking a trip to Turkey, and then not being able to get a Visa because of diplomatic relations. I have a new trip booked for later this year and want to get the eVisa as early as possible so this doesn't happen again. The eVisa is good for 6 months. Does it matter if the Visa expires while I'm still in Turkey? Or do I need to wait to get the eVisa until 6 months before I plan to LEAVE Turkey to come back home?

But the evisa is good for 180 days. And the website it will let me buy it whenever (even more than 90 days out). Is there a reason not to buy it as early as possible? Who cares if the Visa is almost expired as long as it's still valid when I need to enter.

I am traveling in last week of December for a week to Istanbul. Can I apply as early as July 28 - 2018 but not travel until December similar to the question already posted her - any idea?

This is the message I see on evisa website" Your e- visa is valid from 28 July 2018 to 23 January 2019 for a total period of 180 days. Your stay cannot exceed 90 days.
