Time It Takes For A Domain To Appear

I just purchased a domain name and when I went to set it up I accidentally put the wrong url in. I changed it to the proper url and when I type in my domain it is still taking me to the improper website. How long does it take for the change to go into effect. Thank You

Hello there @NELAR,


DNS changes, which is what you do when you connect a domain or change any zone file information, can take 24-48 hours to process. Usually, it's done in a few minutes to a few hours, though. Just keep an eye on the site, and if it goes over 48 hours, give support a call or do a live chat to correct the issue.
