Why can my friend see my Web site and I can’t? Why can’t I see my Web site yet?
During the replication process your newly registered or transferred domain is being updated by the various Internet providers around the world at their own pace. Your friend may be using an Internet provider that has already gone through the replication process which added your domain name. It follows that anyone accessing that Internet provider will be able to see your domain. Your Internet provider may not have gone through the replication process yet and therefore you will not have access to your domain. You may notice this more if the Internet Providers in this scenario are located in different geographical locations.
