Domain?


#1

I just recently got a host with dreamhost a few days ago and it seems the domain name I got isn’t working, it redirecting to some other webspace even though the dns whois says everything is suppose to be with DH. Is there a reason for this or do I just have a wait a while longer for it start to working?


#2

It could still be DNS, even if whois is update…what is the url?

the address is http://www.fruit-salad.org


#4

Looks to me as though DNS is still pointing to the old host…just give it some time :wink:

cool thanks , thats what i thought but i just wanted to make sure i didn’t mess something up lol.

No problem. It’s hard to predict exactly when DNS will update, so once you have done everything you can, patience will usually solve it! :wink:

dnsstuff seems to think it’s ready now…

ok then, any reason why it’s going to another address then?

Ping shows that it’s actually going to a dh server. Any chance when you copied your sit over that you copied an index page that redirects to your old host’s “site suspended” message?

This is interesting too. There’s a forward in this:
