Re: Setting up Wordpress site on paid hosting service

I've removed and reinstalled a fresh instance of WordPress. From further reading, and what you're saying, the hosting wasn't configured correctly and that's why I can't complete the DNS registration.

Re: Setting up Wordpress site on paid hosting service

After 3 weeks of my VoIP service failing (unable to receive calls; phone rings, but neither party can be heard) and having misplaced my router username/password, I've done a factory reset. Despite following instructions to the letter, a...
