    I am trying to start a new webpage using wordpress and I downloaded it and every went fine but when I clicked on http://www.domain/wp-admin it went to the go daddy page that is currently up on the site and not to my admin log in screen for wordpress. Anybody know what I'm doing wrong. Please help a wordpress newbie.

    FTP into your site (or use whatever file management application your host provides) and delete the index.html file in your domain's root folder.

    I can not find any files listed as index.html and a search came up empty.

    How long ago did you register the domain name?

    Allow another 24-48 hours for the domain name to propagate fully.
