When you order a new web hosting account, it needs a little time for the financial transaction to be processed, the account to be set up and activated. As intelligent as the procedure is, a human factor is constantly involved - your transaction may be checked manually or the account might require some technological time to be set up by a live individual. This is often the case with resellers and it is common to wait for hours on end, perhaps even for a couple of days. Instead of working on your websites, you waste time expecting somebody to process the order. Quite often, providers even wait for several orders to stack up within their system queue before they process them together, while you are able to do nothing else but wait for them.
