Just wondering how long the process for a new web address to propagate across the web so shows up other then could not find? Has been about 19-20 hours since received noticed that all was set up.

One thing you can do, which may help reduce the worry-factor, is log in to one of your users at DH which has shell access, and at the command-line do

which will tell you how the DNS situation is looking from the point of view of the DH server; there’s a good chance that the DNS propagation reaches the DH server much more quickly than it reaches your home internet provider.
