How long does it take for a domain to start working? 
When I register my new domain name, or renew an expired domain, how long will it take to go live on the internet?

When you register a new domain name, many times it will become active right away; however, it can take up to 48 hours for most new names to be active and go live. This is called "propagation". Although this can vary depending on the actual registry, this delay is true for most names like com, net, org, biz and info. Please know this is under the control of the registry, and the registrar does not have any abilities to make this happen faster.

It can take up to 72 hours for your name to be fully active once renewed as well. Once a domain expires, it is directed to a default parking page and your site will go down, along with your email. After you reactivate (renew) your domain, all of your previous settings will be restored, and you do not need to re-enter this information.
