How long after I register my domain name can I start using it?
After you register your domain name, it will take anywhere from 12 hours (if you're really lucky!) to 72 hours for your domain name to be functional, depending on your Internet Service Provider. This is because each Internet Service Provider caches the information required to access domain names, and only updates it every so often.

Remember that without a web hosting or email provider, your domain name will of course not function. Keep this in mind when purchasing your domain name, since most hosts will take a day or so to setup your account.
