When will my Domain become Active?

Once your domain name has been registered (or transferred, if applicable), it usually takes between 1 - 2 hours before it becomes active, however it can take as long as 48 hours (especially when the domain is transferred). 

All internet providers must update their records (DNS tables) to reflect new site locations. This is called propagation. Before this happens you are likely to receive the message "There is no DNS entry for http://www.yourdomain.com". This is normal, and will change when your site is active. 

If you still cannot see your domain on the internet 48 Hours after receiving your "username and password" email, then please contact support.
