yes, godaddy is a lot easier to set up everything, i’m pretty sure a bunch of people have the same problem.
I have a similar problem i already install wordpress and i have access via ftp and i see all wordpress folders and files but when i go to my site it said.
The DreamHost customer who owns www.blablalbla.com has not yet uploaded their website or has chosen to leave this holding page active.
If you are the owner of this domain, you’ll find your login information contained within the emails sent to you when your account was activated. Once logged in, you’ll be able to delete this page (quickstart.html) and begin uploading your new site.
Also, here are some helpful links for getting started!
by the way dreamhost very poor support i used the chat support explaining my problem and he or she did the job for me without telling me the steps or any explication so i uninstall wordpress and tried to install it again but i have the same problem again because that person as soon as he or she fixed the problem he left the chat.
i know here is cheaper than godaddy but i prefer pay a little more and have a better host and domain site “designing speaking”, less confuse and a great support.
sorry for express this here but its the true. bye dreamhost
