Unable to go to site after domain reg


#1

I set up a new domain about 4 hours ago and I’m unable to navigate to the page to do wordpress set up (I did install it via ftp)

When I try to visit the site, it tells me it’s not found.

Do I need to wait 2 days or something before I can get into the site?
I thought the 2 day wait was for search engines to find it, not to direct the site…

Any help or advice would be most appreciated

Brand new domains often take more than a day for the DNS information to propagate. If you want temporary access, set up a Mirror Domain like EXAMPLE.dreamhosters.com that mirrors what you’ve set up. dreamhosters.com already exists, so your subdomain of that will show up pretty quickly.
