[resolved] Loaded WP, but my domain still says "coming soon" by register.com (4 posts)

    Hi. This is my first time setting up my own domain for a blog. I registered fatdoctor.org with register.com, then set up bluehost and installed wp automatically. When I go to fatdoctor.org/wp-admin, I still see "this site is coming soon" by register.com. I did tell bluehost to allow my IP through the firewall. Am I doing something wrong? Just want to start my blog again, ditching Blogger. Thanks!

    look for something about DNS servers

    you probably need to tell Register.c to point to the DNS servers of your Host, somethin' like that. It's probably a form you can fill out on Register, with DNS info you got from Bluehost, if i'm saying this right

    did you change your nameservers to point to bluehost?

    @fatdoctor.
    There could be a file named index.html in your root folder. This file will show the "this site coming soon" message.
    Your webserver priority for index.html is higher than index.php.
    Deleting or renaming index.html could fix your problem.
