Domain name not working

Hi there,

I recently transferred my domain name from another hosting site to goDaddy. The switch properly went through and the payment has been made, I have also linked the domain to my website. However, when I try to go to my published website then it still shows the layout of the old website, not the new goDaddy website that I have connected the domain name to. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if they have any suggestions about why this may be happening, please let me know!

Did you change the DNS information like the Nameservers or the IP address to reflect the new hosting? That's most likely the issue if you haven't done that. It's not automatic.
