will it take to activate my domain name?
As we dont register your domain name, it will depend on how long you take to get
your domain registered with your domain registrar. Usually it takes less than 30 minutes
to setup with your registrar. The DNS server entries take hardly a minute to setup with
your registrar. Once your domain is setup with our DNS name servers, it will take about
24-72 hours for your domain name to propagate on the Internet. This is a standard domain
propagation time and regardless of whom your registrar or hosting company is; will take
the same time.

How do I
transfer my domain to dmihosting.com without experiencing any downtime ?
To avoid downtime, please follow these procedures:
1) Sign up for a Web hosting account using our online order form .
Once your account is setup, you will receive an e-mail from us with your FTP
2) Next, upload all of your files to our Web server.
3) After you're done uploading your files, contact your domain name registrar
and have your domain name pointed to our DNS numbers indicated
in your welcome email.
4) Now, be patient. It will take about 24-72 hours for your registrar to
update their DNS (the amount of actual time varies by registrar). Once it's updated, your
domain name will point to your new website that is hosted on our servers automatically.
5) If you use e-mail associated with the domain name, we
recommend you check mail at both locations (with your previous hosting company and on our
mail server). Once you confirm that all e-mail settings and your website are properly
pointed to dmihosting.com, go ahead and cancel your account with your previous hosting
