Where do I find a domain name that was "released" to my account?

My Website is still not online and it has to do with the domain name.

In a previous thread [see here] I was told to change the DNS settings of my domain name so it connects to the  "/public_html" folder.
My  domain name (mitrahairstudio.com) was purchased by a friend of mine on his account, but he has no time to set it up for my website. This morning he released the domain name to my account, so I can handle it from here.  But how do I get to this domain name now so I can manage it?
In cPanel under 'Domains' I can see that my domain name is indeed 'mitrahairstudio.com' but under the domain information, under "Redirects To" it says that it is Not Redirected or connected to the GoDaddy WebHost.  I don't see it anywhere in my account.  What can I do? How can I find the domain name that was released to my account?
 Thank you!

Re: Where do I find a domain name that was "released" to my account?

I am not sure what is meant by "released".  If your friend initiated an account change you would need to accept it.  Generally you would get an email for your part so if you're not able to accept make sure your friend has the proper email address for you and try again.

After the domain is moved to your account you can make sure it is pointing to the IP address for your hosting plan.

 

Find cPanel IP address:
