I registered a site (canidental.com) with a third party registration company (domainsatcost.ca) and am trying to host the site on DreamHost. I've updated the domain information at domainsatcost.ca to reflect third party hosting and updated the nameservers to ns1.dreamhost.com, ns2.dreamhost.com, and ns3.dreamhost.com.
Unfortunately, I can no longer see the website in my broswer, a whois lookup states the domain is "not available" and the nameservers have yet to update on whois (they still show as dns.domainsatcost.ca).
Did I miss a step related to setting DreamHost as the host? Or does the update of nameservers normally take some time? And is the webpage is normally unavailable during this time?
Thanks for your help. I'm a newbie when it comes to hosting, so any advice would be welcome.
