I think it's going to an old domain name that filled in automatically.

Can I fix this.

Hello Imlost,

I am currently seeing the website bring up your WordPress page, however I will answer just in case someone else has the same problem.

One of the most common reasons this happens is if you try to set up the site before the domain name is propagated to our servers either after pointing to our name servers or after purchase.

If that is not the case, the second most common is a misconfiuration or misspelling of the domain name. That can be checked and changed by following the instructions below given by Wordpress:

Changing the Site to use the TEMP URL

This allows you to be able to log into the wp-admin and change the site name under the Settings -> General menu option.

Then return to the file you edited before and remove the two lines. Your site will then operate with the correct name.

Best Regards,
Scott M
