Subdomain propagation time


How long does it take for a subdomain to become accessible? I added a subdomain yesterday afternoon, but still can not access it in my browser. It’s fully-hosted.


It should typically only take a few hours, though it can vary quite a bit. More than 24 hours probably means something is not working somewhere (probably on our side).

Thanks. It did eventually take effect and is working great now.
