    I purchased a domain name from Namescheap around Tuesday. It's Sunday now. How long does the average transferring through nameservers take? Just wondering.

    From my XP, GoDaddy domains are transferred instantly, other domain sellers sometimes take up to 2 days

    You sure you've got your nameservers setup correctly? If your namservers are correct then it must be something with Hostgator.

    Whenever I get a new domain with NameCheap it usually propagates through the DNS system instantly and it works the moment I have the domain in my account.

    You should also stop using the word "transfer" when you really mean DNS propagation. It confuses people.

    Normally the DNS is alive in 24 hours all over the world.

    For me its usually a few seconds, just clear out your cache and dns settings.

    It's sometimes random. I had 2 domains. From same seller. One of them had 10 minutes, the other 2 hours. kinda strange
