Before when I've changed it just to see what happened, it took nearly 15 - 20 minutes to boot up. It would stay on the 'resolving hostname' screen.
Let's say you have bought the domain example.com. Create the hostname server1.example.com (I hope your registry has a web interface where you can create this DNS record) and point it to your server's public IP address. Then enter server1.example.com for host.domain.com.
