Hello all....I am a newbie to webhosting, so please go easy on me!
I recently purchased a domain name through 1and1.co.uk and was going to follow this up by using them as the host of my site....until I got to the payment page and spotted a few extra charges (and they wanted a years payment up front), so I bailed out and set up my webhost account through Lycos webcentre as they bill me on a monthly basis (and the speed of their admin site was far superior).
I believe I've altered the DNS settings correctly with 1and1 so that when my web address is entered on my pc at work it points toward Lycos as I get a "This site is current under construction..." with logos, etc referring to Lycos....but when I try it at home I get "This site is under construction..." relating to 1and1.
Now, I'm probably being dim (no comments please), but I assumed this was to do with the page being stored in my cache, so I've cleared it all out....but when I enter the web address I still get 1and1's default page.
Any help would be appreciated...and I'm sure if someone can answer this, there will be plenty more silly questions from me...
