Can't open wp-admin page of my website /DNS server address could not be found

It's my first time working on this website. I already have a domain(from a diff company) and hosting from godaddy. I wanted to use wordpress to build this website so I installed it on cpanel. However, when I try to open my wp-admin page or the actual website, it says "server ip address could not be found" or "can’t establish a connection to the server". Any help would be much appreciated.

Not knowing your setup...

 

=> If you don't already have a live site on your domain, you'll need to change your DNS at your domain registrar to point to your GoDaddy nameservers for that WordPress install.

 

=> If your domain name is already on a live site that you don't want to move until the new site is ready, you can change your computer's hosts file to preview until you change the DNS.

 

HTH! 😉
