You are, of course, free to use any hosting and/or domain registar that you like. If you need help with setting up your hosting or domain, CWD can help you with every step of the process.
How soon will my domain and hosting become active?
Domain names generally take between 24-72 hours to become active. In most cases, domain names registered through Blue Host active within 24 hours. Times may vary when using a different service.
Hosting will generally become active within 1-2 hours after registration and payment approval is completed. However, until the domain itself is active, access to the site can only be done through the site’s ip address. (e.g. 22.214.171.124).
