My first index.html problem


#1

Newbie to DH, but I can’t believe I’m getting this wrong. I have just set-up an account and have created a subdomain called mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com. I used FileZilla to upload an index.html file via FTP. I can see the file has uploaded into the directory mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com (next to a file called quickstart.html). Yet when I browse to http//www.mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com/index.html or http//www.mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com/quickstart.html or
http//mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com/index.html I get an error - IE could not find mysubdomain.dreamhosters.com.

Is this a propagation delay, even though i am using a subdomain of dreamhosters.com and not transferring domains, etc?

If so, how long should this take? Or am I doing something else wrong?

thx, russellt
