How long for new domain name to come alive?

Post by KMiller » Wed Mar 25, 2009 3:13 pm

We've set up a domain name with Exetel, and got paid hosted web space with Exetel.
I've FTP'd the files to the alternate address given in the domain creation notification.
Now I'm checking the site in a browser, logged in with Exetel ADSL, but nothing is happening.

How long before a new domain name DNS entry comes on line?

I think it can take 12 to 24 hours for DNS to propagate around the Internet.
The views I present are that of my own and NOT of any organisation I may belong to.

Five days and still nothing. Time to chase up somebody official.

Problem solved.
The IT people arranged the domain name registration and web hosting, but forgot the domain name hosting.
