Error Message

Hi,

I’m new to all of this so I apologize in advance…

So I registered my domain name: timwalshdesign.com from godaddy and then purchased the hosting plan from dreamhost. I have already built my website entirely and now just need to figure out how to host the files using dreamhost. I downloaded filezilla but ran into this error message when trying to quick connect: “Error: Critical error Error: Could not connect to server.”

I’ve been reading around and saw that I need to change the nameservers to the dreamhost ones, which is what I did, but I saw no results. Can anyone help? Thanks

You don’t get instant joy on DNS changes. The official term is “propagation” Mostly the magic happens within 12-24 hours.

I just checked and timwalshdesign.com is point to dreamhost for me. Your mileage may vary however, different nameserver update at different times.

Looks good from down here in Australia. Welcome to DreamHost! :slight_smile:

Hi timwal27,

Patience is key when it comes to DNS propagation! :wink: More on that here:

As stated in that wiki article, you can always check on the status of your DNS here: http://www.whatsmydns.net/
