it may take approximately 12-48
hours for the change to come into effect and for your domain name to
start working from our network.
You can access your new hosting account and the website on our
network as soon as its setup. To do so, first login to the control
panel, proceed to 'Web Options' and then find an entry for 'Instant
domain access alias'. Use this url to access your website on our
network. After your domain name DNS has propagated (usually within
48 hours) your domain name will begin to point to fortehosting's
systems, and you will be able to access your site with FTP, FrontPage,
and your web browser using your actual domain..
Please make sure that you setup all your e-mail boxes on our system
before changing the name server information. This way you will not
loose your emails during the DNS switchover.
If you experience any problems with the transfer, please let us know
since we may be able to guide you.
NOTES: As there are over 1000 domain name registrars
worldwide, we cannot provide the exact transfer procedures for each name
registrar. The policies and procedures can be quite different from
registrar to registrar, so you will need to consult the documentation
from your registrar for exact procedures to transfer your website or
edit your domain name record.
It is the responsibility of the
domain name owner to make the DNS changes to the domain name to 'point'
to our Name Servers. While we can assist customers who are having

While waiting for the new name server information to propagate around
the Internet, we recommend maintaining your site at your current host to
avoid down time for your site. During this time, you can use the
temporary address that we gave you to mirror your web site on
fortehosting.com's servers until the transfer is complete.
