How long after I sign up will my website be visible on the Internet?

If you are registering a domain name at the same time you place your order, we need to allow that name to propogate on the Internet. Usually this will take less than 24 hours. On weekends, it could take up to 2 days.
Otherwise, within 15 minutes of signing up you will receive a welcome email with all the information you need to lookup your website, email addresses will then be setup and your site will be created over the next 10 days. Your site will be visible during this time but we will not submit it to the Search Engines till it is completed.
