I finally got an email from the sales department of the host I signed up with asking me to verify my order. The email stated that I could verify through live chat, so I tried that. The live chat agent directed me to a phone number; gee thanks for your help. Below is my response to the sales email (my phone number removed of course):
I can be reached at (phone number removed).
I have to say I am not too happy with your services so far and am rethinking going through with my order. I have waited for more than 72 hours for any type of communication from your company and your email below states that I can confirm my order through live chat, but your live chat agent directed me to your phone number instead of helping me. If I have any more problems, I will be canceling my order and trying another web host.
We'll see what happens.
