Once I register a domain, how long does it take to become active?

After registering a domain with Host Metro 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.  It takes some time to propagate to other databases.
