Please note that it can take 48 hours for your domain name to become active. We can proceed but your domain name wont take you to the new site yet, so don’t panic


You need to login to your “Hosting control Panel” or CPanel as it is called. You have the address in your confirmation email that I mentioned before… you did keep it didn’t you…
