ok, ok, hold your horses and take a deep breath...i have a few questions for you before sending you answers:

1. Have you ever had a website hosted before?

2. Did you purchase domains at DreamHost? If purchased elsewhere, did you change the *nameservers* to the DH default?

3. What type of program did you use to author your website?

4. Seriously, take it easy, its not that difficult....but why would you already determine that your money has been wasted when you only signed up today Confused?

5. I will be more than happy to assist you as i can

Don't worry, just be calm and patient and all will fall into place. For now, you might want to read the Knowledge Base article on FTP.

<3.Program?!?!?!>

well do you know a programming language (ie html, xml, asp, java, php, etc?)

if not we need to suggest a program for you.....there are several very good WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors available (ie Xara, Nvu, dreamweaver, frontpage, and several others that dont come to mind at the moment...) or if you understand one of the programming languages, than all that is typically needed is a program like "notepad"

If you are just getting started with we design, I highly recommend NVU.

NVU (http://www.nvu.com) is free and writes clean code. It's a wysiwyg editor (what you see is what you get), easy to use. Beware of FrontPage.
