What is domain propagation?

Once you make changes to your domain with the registrar you purchased your domain from, the changes will take 5 mins - 72 hours for domain propagation to occur depending on your ISP and how often they update their DNS records. Some ISPs update their records faster than others.

Domain propagation is the process of your registrar handing off the changes to your domain to ISPs, ISPs to other ISPs and so on until you see the changes reflect on your computer with your internet service provider. Some service providers update their records more often than others and receive changes faster. As a result of this, often you will not be able to get to your website by its' domain name but a friend can. Simply wait out until the changes propagate to your ISP. In the meantime we provide you an IP and temporary address in your welcome email which allow you to start working on your site immediately!
