Question about setting up new site for existing domain

I am setting up a new site and will be switching the domain to this new WP site when I've finished it. However I was asked for my old domain when putting my new order in - and now it seems as if it keeps looking for that domain. First - what is the name of my current test/site so I can browse online? and how do I go about creating a new site that I can test and route domain to when the design is final? it now asks me to set up my email as '' - that is not possible yet... how do I move forward?

Hello Beaucarrot,

In order to move forward with your new WordPress installation you can modify the domain information in the General settings section of your dashboard. However, I do not seem to understand your first question. What domain did you setup in your Wordpress settings during the installation?

Best Regards,

wow - thanks for quick reply. I haven't set up any domain in the wordpress settings. I ordered the hosting, i noted my domain, though i also noted that i wasn't switching it yet, and then i selected Wordpress but I'm not sure looking at the control panel interface exactly what url I would put in the browser to see the test site - or if i even have a test site, I just assumed i would because i ordered hosting. sorry if this is incredibly basic - i'm used to setting up hand-coded sites via FTP so I just assumed by ordering hosting and noting the Wordpress installation that I would have an instant sandbox to work in. is that incorrect?
