[resolved] Problem with initial setup and logging in through wp-amin (5 posts)

    I am trying to set up my blog using GoDaddy for my domain and HostGator for hosting. When I initially set everything up and installed WordPress through HostGator, I would try to access partythatbody.com/wp-admin and it would redirect to some GoDaddy page. I did some Googling and it told me to turn off GD's Instapage feature and use the DNS manager to change the IP address the site points to. This changed the format of the site itself but I still can't access wp-admin or anything other than the main page partythatbody.com. I have tried it on different browsers and computers but none of it works.

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

    partythatbody.com is not a WordPress site, you need to check with your host, you have it pointed to a parked page. This is not the GoDaddy parked page or the GoDaddy instant page so go double check that DNS with your host and ensure you only have one @ A Host record pointing to HostGator. :) hope that helps

    I am trying to set up my blog using GoDaddy for my domain and HostGator for hosting.

    Did you change name servers at Go daddy so that it points to Hostgator.
    looks like is still parked at Goddady

    Nameservers : ns43.domaincontrol.com
    ns44.domaincontrol.com

    The name servers were in fact the problem. Thanks very much for the help everyone!
