Uploaded my website but doesn’t show up online

Hello!  I purchased the economy web hosting plan today and just uploaded my website files (index.htm and a corresponding folder with other files) into the GoDaddy root folder (public_html) but when I want to view my website with a browser and key in my domain name (http://www.mitrahairstudio.com/) the browser says the page can’t be reached.

Can you help me?

Thank you!

So you have to update the DNS for your domain and point it to the IP address of the cPanel server - you need to make sure the server is either named the domain or has the domain as an addon

It looks like your domain is still pointing to the GoDaddy Parked page.... 

1) Did you assign this domain to the server

2) If you did, you may have to update the DNS to set the Server IP address

Thank you for your answer!

My Domain Name comes from a different account.  Where exactly does  it have to point to? 

My website files are located in the cPanel File Managr "public_html" folder

Thank you!
