Time between registering Domain and it being usable

I registered my .co.uk domain on Monday 4th Aug and I just checked on the Nominet site and it shows the registration is still being processed.
Time now 1600 Friday 8th Aug.
Does it usualy take this long to process?

Did you do the registration via Plus net or direct with nominet?
I registered mine via Plusnet and it only seemed to take a day or two?

Could be worth raising a link:Contact us ticket then to see if everything is Ok?
Its a couple of years now since I got my domain but I'm sure it was only a day or two before I could use it after ordering?

Just another thought.
What do you get when you click on the "Domain Names" on the left of this page?
It should tell you if it is hosted.

Yes the domain shows as fully registered on Nominet

Raise a contact us ticket, PlusNet will be able to see whats up.

Your website has some lovely clip art - It will be good when the domain name is fixed...
