Http://nerds.dreamhost.com is not available

Hi everybody,

I signed up 5 hours ago. I’ve received the account approval notification email. In the email, I was told my website was on nerds.dreamhost.com, but I could not visit http://nerds.dreamhost.com. I executed DOS command “telnet nerds.dreamhost.com 80” but it shew “Connecting To nerds.dreamhost.com…Could not open connection to the host, on port 80: Connect failed.” Is it normal?

Thanks!

I was going to try to suggest nerds.dreamhosters.com, but it’s not showing up there, either.

How did you set it up?

nerds.dreamhost.com is the hostname of your server (the FTP server name), not the address of your website.

Read the Getting Started article in the wiki to see how to setup your domain(s).
