    Hello guys..

    New to the forum and to site hosting so a BIG HELLO GUYS :).... here is my problem

    Ive had a quick look on the forum but can find what im looking for.. :mad:

    I thought i had followed the right steps for hosting my new site but its not working so here is what ive done..

    I have just purchased a VPS server and new to these hosting servers...
    Bought a new domain
    Changes the name servers for my domain to point to my VPS server
    entered my new domain in to the browser address bar and get a DNS Error - Server cannot be found.
    I have used the Cpanel and WHM to set up a new sql data base and added a new user account (myself)
    I was wanting to install joomla but it will not show my page in the browser so cant get beyond this to proceed..

    I have tried typing in my Domain name mynewdomain.co.uk - Domain Resources and Information. This website is for sale! no joy and tried just using the ip address
    And ive tried:
    http://46.32.232.12
    46.32.232.12
    http://46.32.232.12/joomla where the folder is stored

    The whois look up shows my domain is pointing to my name servers for the Vps ..

    So guys im doing something wrong but not sure what to check next ... can anyone help please??:)

    Thank you..

    You don't say you ever created a cPanel account using that domain. Did you?
