How long before my domain name is active?

Once a domain is registered it can take anywhere from 24-48 hours for the domain to resolve to a server. Once we receive confirmation that your domain name has been registered (or transferred, if applicable), your domain will resolve to our servers instantly. By the time you receive the confirmation email, your domain should be ready for your use. However it usually takes anywhere from 24-72 hours before it is visible to all users of the Internet. All Internet providers must update their records (DNS tables) to reflect new site locations.
