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

Hostmetro can have your site online the same day you submit your order. Your account will be setup within 4 to 8 hours of your purchase, provided that the order application is accurate and complete. You will receive your account information via e-mail, at which point you can start on uploading files to the space and preparing your site.

However, it could take a few days for the domain name to point to the account (name server changes normally take 12-24 hours), depending on whether it is a new registration or a domain transfer. All new domain registrations are normally processed with the order and available within 3-6 hours. Please allow this time period to elapse prior to requesting information on your account.
