when my domain name (just registered) becomes active?
I figure that this is a silly question, and once it does, it will be obvious, but it never hurts to ask!
It should usually start working within a few hours once the registration goes through. Our system will send you an email once the registration goes through and it should usually be fairly soon after that if it's all set up in our system with DNS and web services and everything.
There's not really an easy way to know exactly when it starts working, but when you can bring it up in a web browser it's working for sure!
A lot of it is just luck. It depends when the DNS updates are because I've had one take all day and then I've had one take just under 45 minutes.

Thanks for the /extremely/ quick replies!
