"The connection was reset" when trying to access my admin page.

  1. Today I had recently purchased the domain name from, and am hosting it using hostgator. As you can see, it is accessible. I have also installed wordpress the website using "Fantastico De Luxe" from the hostgator control panel.

    However, when I try and access my administrative part of the website at, I am confronted with the following message.

    "The connection was reset

    If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

    I have already tried accessing it with my Microsoft Security Essentials disabled, and tried to access it with Google Chrome, instead getting this error"

    "No data received
    Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this web page later.
    Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data."

    Any ideas on how I would be able to access my admin? Do I need to wait longer? Is it a problem with cheapname or hostgator?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
