Problem Automatically Approving Account

I’m trying to create a personal website as part of a class assignment and for some reason I got an email saying they had trouble automatically approving my account.
What does that mean?

Here is the email I received:

Hello Corrin,

Thanks for signing up!

I really need this website to be up and running ASAP! What can I do to help fix this problem?

Seems to be the standard process lately to not automatically approve new accounts.

Just wait it out. It usually takes less than 24 hours. You can submit a ticket asking them to fast-track it.

They should probably change the wording on that message though if this is going to happen every time someone signs up. This: “We had a problem automatically approving your account.” sounds a tad ominous…as if you personally did something wrong or they found you were using a stolen credit card or something.

In reality they probably do not automatically approve any accounts (anymore)…why not make a different welcome email explaining that so people do not feel like something needs to be done to correct problems!?

Hello Corrin, Thank you for contacting us for support. I apologize for any frustration. If you can supply a support ticket# or domain name on the account I can look into the status right away.
