Why it takes 3-5 business days for setup?
Because, we need to setup your website and very important we also need to setup all the free templates you choose to use when you sign up with us. All this is done manually and it needs some extra time. Also we are humans and have a family to take care of. We want to offer you an excellent service, starting out with setting up your website the right and correct way. (But honestly, we will have it done much sooner) :)
