site when you key the address into your favorite browser until the registration
is fully processed. This
can take from 24-72 hours. The
best way to check if this has happened is by entering your domain name
in a browser to see where it resolves. If
you see the default login page, or temporary home page we automatically
assign, you know it is active.

go to your web site, the servers on the Internet know where to send the
our DNS receives the request, it knows to send the request to the right
folder on our server(s).
While you wait for the DNS changes to be applied, we provide you the means
to upload or access your website with a temporary domain name until your
domain registration is processed. This
temporary domain address is provided in your welcome e-mail and can also
be viewed through the control panel in .
you can upload files to your folders, setup e-mail etc in advance of your
domain name resolving to our servers.
To confirm that your domain is active and DNS settings are correct,
access your domain name in a web browser as you would any other website.
If you see the "Your account has been created" message, your
domain is pointed to our servers and is ready for use.
