So I have a domain registered at 1and1.com
I did not request that 1and1 host it, but whois.net showed DNS set to 1and1 servers.
As DH directs me to do, I went to the 1and1 admin panel and changed DNS settings to "ns1.dreamhost.com ns2.dreamhost.com ns3.dreamhost.com"
It took an hour, but at last 1and1’s stopped sayin that the domain’s status was “changing” and finally said it was “ready”.
Since then their DNS check (and whois.net) show correctly my domain is now on servers "ns1.dreamhost.com… etc"
When I go to “www.mydomain.com” - I still get 1and1’s dummy page saying “This domain has recently been registered”.
I HAVE already used DH’s panel to (first ) PARK this domain in my acct and (later) REDIRECT www.mydomain.com to another of my domains.
Why won’t DH’s “Managing Domains” control panel affect my domain?
[I had added the domain to my DH account list BEFORE switching DNSs at 1and1. Hope THAT is not a problem.]
Can anybody help? [It’s only been overnight. Should I have to wait longer for the web to catch up with what whois.net knows?
