    Your nameservers are still pointed to enom's defaults:

    Code:
    Name Server:DNS1.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server:DNS2.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server:DNS3.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server:DNS4.NAME-SERVICES.COM
    Name Server:DNS5.NAME-SERVICES.COM

    If it works for you but not others it maybe it hasn't propagated yet. I see the ad page too

    How long should that take? Also, can I use the default name servers?

    If its that it should be fast, years ago it used to take up to 72 or 96 hours, these days it could be as low as a few minutes for some and the same long time for others.

    Nameservers were given to you in the welcome email, are they the ones you have now?
    I just checked your domain with checkdns.net and you have the ones khiltd posted above, but I think you should have ns1.tciforums.org and ns2.tciforums.org

    cPanel's default Apache config doesn't point the primary hostname to any specific account and it's more than likely reading from /usr/local/apache/htdocs. You'll have to change the DocumentRoot directive that's outside of any virtual host declarations if you want something else to happen.

    It is fine when I dont type the www, so how do I fix this, I know how to use cpanel but am unfamiliar with whm so can I have a step by step on how to do this?

    I am not familiar with cpanel set up much so I can't be sure, but www. working/not working can also be a propagation issue, in fact it has happened to me over the years. If your site is working without www but with www it is going to registrar default then more than likely it needs more time to fully propagate.

    tciforums.org and www.tciforums.org both resolve to different IP addresses. If you're not familiar with Apache or BIND configuration I'd strongly recommend filing a support ticket.

    Cost money to use Knownhost's world class support? Of course not. :p
    That's one of the reasons why we've come to love Knownhost.
