New Domain Name access through the Internet

I created a new domain to replace the domain that I did not renew. After setting it up I moved the website to the new domain. Now I am unable to access either the old domain or the new domain through the Internet. Can you tell me how long it will take before the domain name is seen by the Internet and I can log into the website without having to go through Yola. The new domain is dulcimerxing.com

Thanks
Dennis

Not sure what you mean for the DNS settings? Is that on the yola site. When I set up the domain everytime I tried with the www it just rolled me back to the page. when I did it without the www it went through right away.

I only registered the domain this morning. Maybe it takes a couple of days before the process is complete and the domain is available to click on?

I just tried again and I was able to bring up my website using dulcimerxing.com or www.dulcimerxing.com.

Hi Dennis and Smithy,

What you have experienced is most likely Domain Propagation,

When you make changes to your domains or any of your domain settings they can take up to 72 hours to take affect.

Although usually its not even close to that amount of time.

Hope this information is of help to you,
