Is the domain properly pointed to the server via your nameservers at your domain name registrar, and have you given them time to propagate? I wouldn't bother trying to work on a Joomla installation until you've got the domain working properly. You might place an index.html on the account for now until you're sure the domain has been setup properly.

As for the errors, you should upload a favicon for your website, and you should also have error pages for your users to land on when they hit a bad link. More on error pages here in the docs:
Error Pages - cPanel Documentation

In your: cPanel > Advanced section > Error Pages
Is where you'll add error pages.

Adding a favicon and error pages won't help the domain to work, but will make your logs later, easier to read for problems.

You can test for problems with your domain at a site like this one for example:
/http://www.intodns.com/


HTH!
