Hi Jia,

Thank you for your question and congratulations on publishing your site! Would you mind sharing your domain name? We will happily look to see if it has been published correctly.

As soon as your site is published it is live on the internet. However, please note that it takes time for newly published sites to be indexed by the search engines. This can take anywhere from a few days to a few months and unfortunately, it is out of our control.

Until your site is indexed, people will need to access it by clicking on a link to your site that you provide, or by typing your URL directly into the address bar of their browser.

You are welcome to read more about promoting your website here.

We have developed a series of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tutorials that you will find handy when looking towards maintaining and promoting your website on search engines. Please have a peek at them here: SEO Tutorials.

Please let us know if you need further information or clarification in this regard, Jia. We will be happy to assist you further.
