server's domain name server (DNS) in order to view
your site by typing your domain name into the browsers
address bar. This can be easily done by contacting
your registrar with the DNS change. Should you need
help, we also offer free support in helping you point
your DNS to our servers.

domain to switch over to your servers?
(A.)This is called a propagation
period. It usually takes 2 - 3 days. We've seen it
happen as fast as 2 hours however 3 days ensures it
is updated throughout the entire internet. With any
web design project, this process should be done ASAP
