    When did you get your domain name? Could be that the DNS has not rolled over yet.

    Your typical wordpress setup actually defaults to mydomain.org/wp-admin/, not wp-admin.php. You are accessing the index.php located in the wp-admin directory.

    In some cases, for increased security, you may shuffle things around so that your admin area is in a different place. This wouldn't be the case with a standard fantastico installation, however.

    Hi,

    I think it is because the DNS of your hosting account is not link to your Domain Name. Try to ask a help to the customer support of Godaddy or Hostgator. Honestly, I suggest that if you buy domain names, but it in Namecheap.
