I am totally new to this whole "owning a website" thing, so please bear with me and try not to mock my ignorance too much.
My first question: I have purchased my domain name, and I received an email saying it was created, but when I try to access the URL all I get is a page saying it doesn't exist. Now, granted, I haven't done anything with it yet, but shouldn't it still have some sort of placeholder graphic?
Second, I have tried sending test emails to my new domain email address, but they all get return undeliverable. I've also tried accessing the webmail from the site here, but I get an error.
Third, I've installed Wordpress to a database, but when I try to access the links I received in an email once that was done, I again get errors.
So, should I wait a day? Is it not ready yet? Is something else going on? Am I too stupid for even be attempting this? Please let me know what you think, and thanks.
