auto magically. Had the message show up telling me the DNS had not been updated yet, so I tried putting the IP in directly, which led me to the default cPanel(ish) page. Then I went back and reloaded the normal URL and here I am.

Do people really have their host files set to link FTUS properly? I thought most people use host files on internet sites to disable reporting of downloaded hacked sw back to the manufacturer.

I use host all the time in my job on private networks though since a lot of my customers do not seem to understand proper DNS routing when it comes to domains vs workgroup settings....

I did screw with my wife redirecting facebook to myspace one time though

I don't even know what a host file is.
