ideally, it should take only a couple of minutes but most web hosts will give it an allowance of 24 hours..sometimes you will need to access your domain via the IP before the domain propagates. However, it should not take more than 24 hours and if that happens, then you should contact your web-host immediately
Can you clarify your question? If you are asking how long a new record takes to propagate out to remote DNS servers, you can find out by asking each DNS server.
On Windows, from a cmd prompt, or in Terminal.app on Mac, or a terminal window in Linux:
nslookup my-new-record.domain.com dns-server.internet.com
You can also look up more information on a command line utility called dig. Here's a web interface for dig:
If you're asking how long a DNS record lasts before getting deleted or updated, that's the TTL (time to live) field in a DNS response.
Open the link above
type in nstld.verisign-grs.com for the hostname
change the Type to A
click on Dig
the second field in the response is 300, which means this record has a time-to-live of 300 seconds. Any cached responses for this record will check the authoritative server for updates after the TTL expires.

I got that far: Domain name, web host; paid for both. Get on my cPanel and I'm lost. I'm not even sure if my domain name is connected to the host. I did put the domain name in when I bought the webhost package, but I...
