Can't Install Wordpress And Rather Confused


#1

Hi

I confess I’m a bit of a newbie at this and would really appreciate any help.

I bought a domain through 1&1. I then added it as a hosted domain on my Dreamhost package and did the wordpress 1-click install. I’ve got an email telling me to follow a link to set up create an admin user but when I click it all I get is 1&1’s standard “this domain has been registered” page.

Any insights?

Thank you!

you probably need to set your DNS for your domain on 1and1 to point to dreamhost.

dns1.dreamhost.com
dns2.dreamhost.com
dns3.dreamhost.com

the dns change can take anywhere between 12 to 48 hours so be patient
