Some acquaintances of mine inherited a website running a custom wordpress template and the previous owner asked them to take over and to get it set up on their own server. I was asked to assist since I was the only one they knew with some technical skills.
The previous site owner send me a backup of the web files and the mySQL database and recommended using site5.com for hosting.
I got the files installed, things seemed to be OK and we were then ready to transfer the DNS.
The domain is registered through GoDaddy and the prior owner issued a transfer to me, I got signed up accepted the domain and then went in and set the nameservers per site5 instructions: dns.site5.com and dns2.site5.com
I expected that this was all that would be required and would just wait for the dns entries to update.
However, at present when I browse or ping the Website. I get Server not Found.
Is there anything else that I should have done or am I just in DNS Limbo?
WHOIS.NET reports that it is registered to me and has the nameservers correct.
You'll have to excuse me, while I've set up several websites internally at my work, this is the first time I've worked on an internet website.
