Which aspect specifically is not working?  Are you getting a certain error?  If you're unsure I would suggest contacting live support, where they can view your account and see if anything is missing.

I'm going to try and contact them! I don't have a specific error message, but when I type the primary url in a search bar it comes up with essentially an error. I also no longer can access my WordPress dashboard for some reason since changing the domain from the temporary url.

It still seems to not be working after following those steps. If the domain was purchased through a site such as godaddy, do you think that is playing a role in my issue?
