Common Domain Name Issues

Q: How can I find if my domain’s name servers are set correctly?
A: Go to http://whois.domaintools.com/(yourdomain name here) then scroll to NAME SERVERS section. If the name servers shown there are the ones we indicated in your Maiahost Account Information email, then the settings should be correct!

Q: The name servers shown are not the same as the account info email. What should I do?
A: If we are the domain registrars (you have the domain registered with us), then you should contact our “Domain Management” department via a support ticket from the clients area, otherwise you will have to contact the company where you purchased the domain name.

Q: How long does it take for a new domain to be accessible?
A: Usually few minutes, but if you already accessed that domain before registering it then it might take up to 2 days.

Q: How long does DNS Propagation Delay takes?
A: Depends on your local Internet Provider settings. Usually from about 6 hours up to 48 hours in some rare cases.
