Domain problems


#1

I just signed up for dreamhost about 10 minutes ago and selected “Register a new .com/net/org/info domain for me free!” and put arielseri.com for the “First domain to host”

i’ve tried going to www.arielseri.com but it says the page cannot be found. i’ve even uploaded a test page to see if it will work, but nothing. i log into my control panel and it says You have no domains currently registered through DreamHost on “Ariel’s Account”! - i thought dreamhost offered a free domain registration when you signed up!

can someone please tell me what i have to do to get this working???

Patience! Stuff needs a little time to be set up. In addition, DNS has to update before you can access the site via the domain name, and that can take anywhere from a few minutes up to 72 hours, will be reachable from some parts of the net before others, and is likely to “come and go” until all the nameservers/caches/etc have been updated - that is just the way it is.

If you want to see your site before DNS changes take effect, check out this DH wiki article.
