THE REGISTRATION PROCESS
When you submit your domain registration request, registrar4less.com verifies your credit
card information and once approved, your domain registration is processed into
the worldwide domain registry.
The master domain database is updated to reflect that your domain is taken. The
master registration database is managed by Network Solutions, Inc. Once your
domain registration is submitted for processing, you can check www.networksolutions.com
and do a domain name inquiry for your domain.
Don't be alarmed if you do a "whois" inquiry and find the domain is reported as
"available". The whole database update process takes up to 24 hours.
Network solutions will merge your domain information into its database.
The zone files, which make the Internet work, are normally updated twice daily, 7
days a week at 5:00 AM and 5:00 PM U.S. Eastern Standard Time. Requests that
are completed before these times will be included in that 12-hour zone file update
and will normally begin to take effect within 5-6 hours.
Next, the world's name servers are updated. Network Solutions transfers your
domain information to the master root servers, for example b.root-servers.net, for
distribution to the rest of the network. It can take up to 24 hours for your domain to
be "visible" to the whole internet, although the process usually takes about 12
Meanwhile, registrar4less.com transfers your domain information into its
and by the time your domain is visible to the internet, your domain name service is
available for query.
