My domain not available to me.


I have a domain I have never used for some years, the registrar put some adds in it, now I have hosted and configured this domain as a VPS and have started to put files in it but when I enter the domain in the browser, it still displays the adds index of the registrar although I have my own index file in /var/www/.

I thought the domain was automatically "taken over" (I do not know the correct technical expression) by the hosting company when my hosting is accepted by the host after they install a bare distro.

Obviously, my expectation was incorrect and there is something else I need to do.

Can someone help me solve this problem?

Thank you for your help.

I think the simplest way would be to contact your hoster and ask what is going on.
