Description

SHORT VERSION I created a hosting order for tejasbarrios.org, and pointed the DNS to the mayfirst nameservers, and my site now shows up at tejas-web.mayfirst.org but not tejasbarrios.org. What's up?

LONG VERSION I created a hosting order for tejasbarrios.org. Then we called the person with DNS control, and he logged in to Network Solutions and put in a.ns.mayfirst.org and b.ns.mayfirst.org. On the MF/PL Control Panel for the hosting order, the red asterisks went away, and at http://whois.net/whois/tejasbarrios.org the mayfirst nameservers show up -- both indicating that the DNS is set up correctly and has propagated.

But when I install Drupal via the CP, or just put a plain index.html in tejasbarrios.org/web, and then visit http://www.tejasbarrios.org, I get a Network Solutions page saying "This Site Is Under Construction and Coming Soon."

The extra-strange part: somehow, during the few hours the Drupal instance was there (installation completed by visiting tejas-admin.mayfirst.org), spam accounts were created. I guess they just visited tejas-admin.mayfirst.org.

In my attempts to make this work, I deleted the tejasbarrios.org hosting order that was connected with the tejas-admin user, and created a new one with the tejas-web user. So the tejas-admin user is now an orphan user account that can be deleted.

You are experiencing dns caching which can take up to 24 hours to clear or you are experiencing browser caching which can take longer. Either way, it will eventually clear up. It works fine for me now.
