How long to populate a site


How long does it take for a new website to go live after I have uploaded the files?[hr]
Nobody knows? :frowning:


Should be instantly, assuming you are not waiting for a DNS propagation change. You need to tell us more about what you uploaded and where you uploaded it? Domain name? Folder? Application such as Wordpress or something else like phpbb?

If you load the site, what are you seeing? Is it a Dreamhost quickstart page? If so perhaps you loaded your site to a folder but are navigating to the root of the domain?


Thank you for the detailed response! It is actually showing up now. But thank you for the reply!
