HostMonster Web Hosting Help

New Account Timeline


How long will it take to get my new site online?


Upon sign up for a new hosting account with us, you will receive your account information via e-mail. Your hosting account is ready to access within a few minutes, provided that the order application is accurate and complete. It will give all the information to start uploading files to the space and preparing the web site.

If you register a new domain with us during the sign up, the domain will be available for use within the hour, in most circumstances. If you already owned a domain upon signup, the email will contain our Name Servers used to delegate the hosting to us. You can modify those at any time, however please note there's a 24-48 hour window where DNS resolvers worldwide release and update their caches. In the meantime, a temporary URL is provided to build the website here until domain is pointing to the HostMonster account.
