    Have you pointed DNS records to justhost? What do you see when you type in your domain name into the browser?

    Nothing at all, bought the domain name.. then went to justhost.. I choose an offer and hosted it, then installed a wordpress theme.. I thought that it will be as simple as creating blog on blogger or a channel on youtube

    Are you seeing the standard Godaddy parking page? If so, then as sub001 says, you will need to change the DNS to point to your new hosting.

    Did you change the nameserver ?
    Domain fully propogated ?
    If your hosting provider offers softclouse then easy to install wp in seconds.
    Plenty of tutorials are there in YouTube just follow the step by step or if you're newbie the. outsource it some1.

    So, you see something like:

    This site can’t be reached
    yourdomain.com’s server DNS address could not be found.

    ...correct? If so, the first thing you will need to do is to modify Name Server settings (DNS) at Godaddy to point them to justhost. Justhost should have given you 2 name server records for this purpose.

    That's the same thing as "this site can't be reached". Godaddy is just monetizing unclaimed space. You need to set up DNS at Godaddy to point to Justhost.

    Sounds like you haven't changed the nameservers? at Godaddy
