I've got the domain name hosted with Network Solutions.  I have a hosting account with cPanel setup for this at HostGator.  The IP address of the HG server is, and I have updated the A record in DNS for to point to this IP address.  When I ping I get that IP address as expected.  

I'm able to FTP to the HG hosting account using as the host and the file makes it there as expected.  I can see it in File Manager in cPanel.  

For some reason, though, when I browse I'm getting this default ads site as if the domain was parked or something like that.  I can't figure out what's going on.  

Any info on how I can resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
