How can I avoid downtime while I wait for the new information to propagate throughout the Internet?

While waiting for the new nameserver information to propagate throughout 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 Web address (URL) that we gave you to mirror your web site on VirtualReality's servers until the transfer is complete.

If your site is new, you can use your temporary URL to view your web site while you wait for the propagation period to complete.
