Do I own the domain that I register with you?
Our customers always have full ownership of the domains that they register with us(even if we provide it for free). Some of our customers have trouble transferring their domains to us because some shady hosting companies registered client’s domain under the hosting company’s name, and hold it hostage when their client want to leave. We are strongly against this type of practices.We don’t want force anyone to stay with us.

I've been notified that my account has been setup but my site is still not active.
If you have received a notification e-mail and it’s been over 48 hours, it means either that you did not point your domain name to the right DNS servers, or that your ISP’s DNS server has not yet been updated. It generally takes 24 hours for domain names to become active. This is just how the Internet works; there is no way we can speed up the process.In most cases DNS settings are updated in 1-3 hours but your PC and broswer has cached DNS,you can use any proxy to look is your site working or clean your PC cache.
