Can't access wp-admin login page?

I registered a new domain with namecheap and hosted it on bluehost. I have changed the nameservers too to bluehost nameservers.

I then installed Wordpress using cpanel on my domain, but when I try to access the wp-admin login page, there is no login panel. It just loads a template page of bluehost.

I googled this but couldn't find the right answer. Can anyone please help me in figuring out what the problem is?

    Does the homepage work? Are you sure you haven't installed it in a directory like /wordpress/? That's the default one if you do it via Softaculous.

      Nope, didn't install it in any directory. Just did the install on the primary domain. My only guess why I'm not able to access wp-admin login page is maybe that it takes some time for the DNS propagation.

    You need to wait at least 24 hours.
    If you don't see anything different then make sure you installed WordPress on the right host?

    Hello Regjoe,

    You can expect a propagation time up to 24 - 48 hours. Make sure you extracted the wordpress file.

    If its showing the bluehost default page, it means site already propagated. You only need to remove index.html or default.html file from your site root.
