ok so i downloaded wordpress through fantastico (gatorhost=my host) and when the download is done there is a link that says "view site" which i click on, but it merely redirects me to my C-Panel......what the heck do i do from here?

the wordpress tutorial shows a administrator tool for wordpress as the first thing showing up after downlaoding, however i jsut get directed to my hosting c-panel....am i missing something, or do i need to do something in my c-panel?

    Hey matrix1989,

    Is this your primary domain, or did you already create an addon domain?

    Try typing in the url in your web browser and see if it comes up.. If it doesn't, try typing it without the www.. After that I would check to make sure the domain is installed properly.

      i typed in my URL both ways and neither one worked. i purchased the domain from the same place i bought my hosting from. about 3 hours ago. how do i check to make sure my domain is installed correctly?

      thanks

        If you have only just purchased your domain and hosting then it may not have had time yet to propagate.

        Can you post the URL here?

          yeah

          its puahub.com

          and what is propegate?

          my welcome email said something about 24-48 hours and i THOUGHT they meant that only applied if i bought my domain elsewhere, but im very new to web hosting so i could be wrong

          thanks
