Coming from office live, no dashboard page! (2 posts)

    Hello, newbie here... I am having to leave Office Live since they are shutting down. My Domain name http://www.searsmotel.com is from Hostway. I signed up with Bluehost under that name yesterday and when I downloaded the WordPress software thru there everything seemed fine until I tried the http://www.Searsmotel.com/wp-admin link and all i get is the existing old webpage and not the login for the dashboard to begin to make my webpage on wordpress. How do I get to the login to make my page? Did I make a mistake by naming it the same as my existing domain? Since it is with Bluehost I thought all had to be the same, even though in the future I will be wanting to add other different webpages for my other businesses. What am I doing wrong? I am not a big tech person, and thought this was to be the easy way to make a new site.....

    If searsmotel.com is supposed to be pointed to BlueHost, it currently isn't. You will either need to setup your site on the BlueHost temporary URL until you're ready(Contact them for help with that), or else you will need to have your nameservers pointed to the BlueHost nameservers. (See: https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/1 )

    Note that pointing your site to these nameservers will cause whatever you have setup on the BlueHost side to showup online after DNS propagation, thus taking your current site offline.
