Hello Olbok,

I believe your question was, "How long does it take before I can view my website on the internet after uploading my files into a new account?"

The answer is IMMEDIATELY. The limiting factor is the domain name or URL that you are using to view the website. If you have just registered the domain name or change the name servers (or made ANY DNS change), then you will need to allow for propagation time to use the domain name to view the website.

However,you can always use the temporary URL to view the website. You can find the temporary URL for your website in the Account Management Panel (AMP) under ACCOUNT and BILLING DETAILS - (click on DETAILS) and then under the ADMIN details you should find TEMP URL.

The temp URL allows you to see the website on the internet without having to use the actual domain name.

However, if you are using an application to run your website that requires a specific domain name, then you will either need to wait on the propagation or modify your configuration to use the temp URL. An example of this is Wordpress. Wordpress is URL-centric, meaning that it generates all of the links for the website BASED on the domain name.

I hope this helps to clarify your question and provide you the answer you need.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
