DNS issue for free domain with web hosting

Hi. I recently purchased a hosting from godaddy w/ Order Number: 1559500917. When I bought it comes with a free domain and website builder. I started to build the website and then published it. When I look for my site http://leaninspeakout.com it says DNS address could not be found, same with https://dnschecker.org/#A/leaninspeakout.com - even after 24 hours not a single DNS server from dnschecker.org recognizes it. When I went to my domain manager, it says DNS only (off site). What does it mean?

The domain mentioned does not appear to be registered, simply adding a domain to DNS hosting does not register it.  Rather it needs to go thru the store checkout, unfortunately the domain and hosting need to be in the same shopping cart to qualify for the offer.

hi @Nate,

 

Verified that the domain has to be on the same cart on checkout for the promo to take effect, it worked on my second purchase. Thanks again!
