Domain Configuration Time
If the domain has name servers that already point to HotDoodle, HotDoodle will start resolving your domain to your site within an hour. This is the time it takes the web server to absorb the new association between your domain and your site.
If the domain uses HotDoodle nameservers but this is the first time you have told HotDoodle about the domain it can take 1 to 3 days for the updates in HotDoodle's domain name to be propagated over the internet.
If the domain does not refer to HotDoodle and does not use HotDoodle domain name servers, then you need to make it do so.
