What's your domain name?
The one you've registered with Powweb?

Okay, the first thing is you go to the Internic:
click on the WHOIS button, and see whether the domain is registered. The info screen will also show you what the WHOIS server is for your domain.
Your whois server is "whois.inww.com".
It looks like the first thing you need to do is go to inww.com (your Registrar) and request a change in DNS servers. Your current DNS servers are:
Apparently those name servers aren't resolving your domain at all, since a reverse lookup gets no IP address for your domain.
If you have asked POWWEB to run authoritative DNS for your domain, then you need to go to your domain management account at inww.com and change your DNS servers to Powweb's servers. The info about this should have been in your setup e-mail from Powweb.
Next, check at the Internic about once a day until you see the new name servers pop up at the WHOIS inquiry. After you see that happen, it means the world's root servers will be updating their tables and about 5 days later your domain name will resolve to your Powweb server.
That's the basics.
Domain Name: FLASHPUNK.NET
Registrar: MELBOURNE IT, LTD. D/B/A INTERNET NAMES WORLDWIDE
Whois Server: whois.inww.com
Referral URL: http://www.inww.com
Name Server: NS8.SAN.YAHOO.COM
Name Server: NS9.SAN.YAHOO.COM

I really appreciate the help..
I dont know much about domain name registering etc..
so i thought Powweb was going to take care of all that for me, since i requested for powweb to get the domain name for me..
could it just be taking so long becuase of the holidays?
(merry christmas by the way)
You're quite welcome. Good luck! I have one domain registered at inww, and it's very easy to change your DNS servers as long as you can remember your inww password!
Since you own the domain name and Powweb is not your registrar, you are responsible for changing the DNS delegation. See http://www.powweb.com/faqs/?category=DNS&faq_id=135.
Happy holidays to you!

this is what happend.
i had the site at geocities (thats why its at yahoo)
I quit that account to come to powweb.com because its better service and more functionality for the same price...
I dont believe i own the server tho.. and if i dont own it.. that pisses me off very much
