    Bought a new domain, pointed it towards my hosting, added it as an addon domain, and now i want to add it to wpdirect, its not letting me, is there like a waiting time before your site becomes active:confused: it never said that there would be while i was buying it.

    if not, what am i doing wrong:confused: anybody have instructions :D

    sometimes it can take a while for dns changes to kick in.
    sometimes you should try the domain with AND without the www.
    and see if it helps. also keep clearing out your cookies.
    this is one thing i actually like godaddy for, they dont mess around.
    you change your domains and go to work.
    but others have taken 12 hours or more.
