Once I Register a Domain, How Long Does it Take to Become Active?
After registering a domain with HostMonster or any other registrar, it typically takes between 24 and 72 hours for your domain to show up in the registry database and for the information on the new domain to propagate to all the root DNS servers.
If this is the main domain on your HostMonster account, you may check your website using the temporary URL as indicated in the "Welcome to HostMonster" email you received upon sign-up.
If this is not the main domain on your HostMonster account, you may use the temporary URL in combination with the directory which the new domain has been assigned to.
Note: If you have not already assigned the domain, please Click Here for further instructions.
