I just got a new DH hosting account yesterday; my domain is not accessible yet.
I know it takes a while for DNS info to propagate, but on my DH panel DNS page, the list of “Non-editable DreamHost DNS records” for my site includes the 3 NS records, but no default A record.
Is that normal? Despite DNS propagation delays preventing me from initially contacting my host from elsewhere on the net, shouldn’t the default A record have been created immediately, and shouldn’t I be able to see it on the panel?
Also, I can’t ping my domain name from within my DH shell account, does that make sense?
