I just registered my domain name, added it on to my hosting. I uploaded the index.html file, but I'm still only seeing the hosting's parked domain page. What's going on? I've tried .html files that work on my other sites, and they are not working with this new domain. I'm able to log into the account with my FTP client, and I see the files in the space. But for whatever reason I can't get the site load the .html or .php index files when I visit it. Any help would be appreciated. I've done this a million times before and I don't know why its not working now.

Thanks,

    Well, as your Topic Heading says.. its a problem with your DNS,

    Try this..
    OpenDNS | Internet Navigation And Security
    And add those two ip's to your DNS settings.. Its the best .

    Or try using a proxy to see your website - that should help too.

    Else the last option is to wait till your DNS is resolved.

      Will opendns help me with a related problem? My dns is resolved- I can see it on computers outside of my network. However, on my home network, the domain is still showing at the old location. I tested with a proxy, and it shows correctly. What gives? This has been going on for days, and I can't figure out how to get the new location to show at home without a proxy.

    Well if you can get to a parked page with your domain it means that the DNS is telling it to goto your host. It looks like like something went wrong when you added the domain to your host.

    Well,

    you cannot do anything about it.. you have to wait till your home network dns is resolved.
    Its the problem with the ISP, sometimes it happens that it takes time for the DNS to get resolved.

    You have to wait and nothing else.

      Thanks Prateek,
      Before reading this thread, I couldn't make any sense of the situation, as this has never happened to me before. At least I can be assured that everyone else is getting the new site.

        You can do a temp fix by forwarding your site domain too your server IP in your local hosts file.
