How long before my site is accessible globally?

The first thing we do after we receive your payment is to register your domain name. This usually takes less than 5 minutes. Then we create your hosting account - another 5 minutes.
However, it takes up to 48 hours before the newly registered domain name ( is online. The reason for this delay is that the DNS information on all Domain Name Servers around the world has to be refreshed.

It doesn't matter where you register the domain name - this delay is always there. Until your domain name is online you can access your site by IP, as specified in the welcome email.

There is similar delay when you transfer a domain name, but it is usually shorter.
