    by site not appeared online, do you mean you get a Page not Found or is it requested URL not found.
    If its the first error, your domain name hasnt resolved and you might need to just wait longer.
    If its the second make sure index.htm is a default index page on the server.
    try changing it to index.html.

    Go to http://www.dnsreport.com and run a check on your friend's domain

    Two big things you want to check:

    1. That the DNS servers shown are your DNS servers

    2. That the IP shown for the domain is the IP you assigned to the hosting account

    If both of the above is correct then you probably just need to clear your
    web browser cache to see the changes you made to the web site.

    If the above doesn't match the correct information then you probably need to
    wait for the domain to finish transferring before you can view the site.

    If you are using mod_userdir on your server, you can view your friend's site by
    their login username with the following:

    http://servername/~username

    servername = your server's main hostname (server IP works too)

    username = login name for the account you want to view
