Site registered but says its not there

I registered the site name and when I click on the link it says that the page is not found, xn-exmple-4nf is the encoded version of exаmple, if you can tell the а is a lookalike, so its not a real a, and that might be the problem, the site name was taken, and if you go to https://exа it changes to the encoded version. So I thought I could do that but the site does not even work. PLEASE HELP.

@Shoonygog Have you deployed a site there, with an index.html page?

If you create a site instance, but don’t deploy a site, then you’ll see the default “Page Not Found” error.

Ahh! I see my problem! thank you SOOO much, Ive used netlify for a while but I have stoped, now that I use it I forgot it needs to be named “index.html”. Thank you!

Oh, I changed it to a “index.html” uploaded it and it still does not work, This is the “index.html” code:

<!doctype html>
