Welcome to the Domain Registration Frequently Asked Questions. Here you will find answers to the common questions asked about our services.
When I register a domain name, who will have ownership of it?
When you register a domain name with us, you will have full ownership of your domain name. This means that you can move your domain name somewhere else or modify it however you want. You have full control over your domain name.
How long does it take before my domain name is active?
Once your domain name has been registered (or transferred, if applicable), it usually takes about 12-24 hours to be active. All Internet providers must update their records (DNS tables) to reflect the new site’s location.
Will there be any downtime in transferring my domain name registration to WeB4U HOST?
There is no downtime associated with transferring your domain name registration to WestHost. Once the domain is transferred you may wish to change the DNS on your domain to point to our name servers. If you do change your DNS servers, this can introduce downtime of up to 24 hours.
How long does it take for the DNS to update?
From the time you change the DNS on your domain name to point to our name servers it will take approximately 12-24 hours for the change to propagate throughout the Internet and become active. During this time your website may be down until the change has fully propagated through the Internet.
Will I have unlimited access to update and make changes to my pages?
You have unlimited access via FTP and the Web-based File Manager 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. As such, you can create and maintain your Web pages on your own computer and upload files to your website at your leisure.
Can I access my domain address with or without the “www”?
Yes, you will be able to access the domain address with or without the “www” in front of the domain name. Example: [http://www.your-name.com] or [http://your-name.com] is acceptable, whichever you prefer.
