Well, all the registrar is doing is registering your domain name. Now it is strange they have not set it up for you like this says they are suppose to:
"To create a domain, you fill out a form with a company that does domain name registration (examples: register.com, verio.com, networksolutions.com). They create
an "under construction page
," create an entry in their name serve
r, and submit the form's data into the whois database
That all is done by the company that does the domain name registration. But any "under construction" page is not going to point to your actual site since you are having your site hosted elsewhere. The registrar would have to have their server set up to point your domain name to your hosting server where you're actual files reside.
I don't know what you signed up for at the hosting site as to what they will do for you. I would re-read the hosting package you paid for and see what they are obligated to provide you. Same for the registrar, although they may only be responsible for registering your domain name with WhoIs.
