Once registered, can i use my domain name immediately?

Once you have confirmed your registration was successful your domain name is ready to use.

However, due to the nature of the DNS system it can take up to 24-36 hours for all the DNS servers across the Internet to "learn" and be able to "see" your domain.

Although it can take up to 36 hours it is typically much less than this (usually around 12-24 hours).
