my dad runs a photo studio and over the past 3 years i'd made him a little website which ive been running off my free AOL webspace.
however, we finally decided today to take the plunge and spend some money on a decent site. The offline site is ready to be uploaded now and so today we bought some space but cannot get it working.
Previously my dad had been using Easily for his domain name re-direct which has been pointing to my free AOL space. He's set up an account with 123-reg today. On Easily i've changed our nominet tag this afternoon to 123-reg in an attempt to transfer our domain name to 123-reg. 123-reg was saying that the transfer was completed this evening, so we then bought the 123-reg hosting/webspace to go with our domain name. ive then ftp'd my web files to our new space today which seemed fine. now when I type in the domain name it takes me back to the Easily homepage. am I doing something wrong? or does this take time to change?
ive gone into his old Easily account but since we transferred the nominet tag his domain is no longer there. so why does the address still point to Easily? i've also tried changing the "nameserver" to 123-reg's one but this hasn;t changed anything.
so how do I get my dads domain name to take people to the new webspace we've just bought where the files have already been uploaded.
its the first time ive used anything other than our free webspace and i'm obviously making some mistakes somewhere along the line. or have I done everything right and now I just need to be patient.
My confusion mainly stems from the fact the domain name is still pointing towards the easily homepage.
can anyone help me?
