How Long Does It Take to Reserve a Domain?

New domain name registrations (and reservations) are perfomed instantly once your order has been processed. New domain name searches and reservations can be made from Web Hosting Canada's Domain Names page.

New clients placing their first order with Web Hosting Canada will generally experience a short delay (that generally does not exceed 2 hours) while the account undergoes an initial security review. Existing clients will see their orders processed in real-time, and they domain reservation will take effect immediately following payment confirmation.

Please note that registered domain names may take up to 24 hours to propagate on the Internet. This delay depends on your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and unfortunately cannot be accelerated.

Several domain types, including .com, .net, and .org require an additional email confirmation following each new registration. Please make sure you've clicked on the enclosed link to confirm your email address within 7 days of your order to avoid an automatic suspension of your domain.
