I set up my domain & host 5 days ago. Uploaded the index page to the Godaddy server & set up the default nameserver. All appears OK & the online chat person I messaged with says it is OK. Anyone know how long it takes to become visible on the net?
It should be online by now and if the online support says it's ok, first you should try to clear your cache and if that does not work, you should consider to verify your site from a different computer or phone, but most important from a different ISP.
Or you could give us the address of your site to try to verify it.

At what "index page" are you referring?
What hosting plan do you have? Give us the full name, something like "Ultimate Linux Hosting with cPanel"...
