Hello Hnote1,

You need to make sure that you are not actually simply changing the name servers on your domain name to point to our hosting server. I also did double-check your account, and the domain name . I don't see any notes stating that you ran a "domain transfer" - since your domain is not within our control, the initiation of the domain transfer must occur at the current domain registrar. Here's an article on explaining this difference in case you need it:

Domain names registration vs. Name Server change.

If you require any further assistance, make sure to let us know or contact live support.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
