I installed Wordpress and the admin page can not be found.
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.

Hello Irubio74, and thank you for your question. It looks like you're probably trying to access your WordPress installation on our server over the temporary URL. When you try to access your WordPress administration area it is going to try to re-direct to your actual domain name, and then append the temporary URL onto the admin URL. So you'll get a 404 page not found error, and that's coming from your previous host's server. You'll want to update your computer's local hosts file to force your computer to resolve your domain name to our server for testing: Modifying your hosts file After you've ensured that everything is properly running on our server, then you'll want to update your name servers at your Registrar where you registered your domain name to point to our name servers following this guide: Updating your domain's name servers Name server updates can take 24-48 hours to fully propagate, but after those settings update, you should just be able to use your domain name from anywhere and access the site on our server. Hope that helps, if you have any follow-up questions at all please don't hesitate to ask away! - Jacob
