These are the most common account status that you'll see:

Initialize accountYou need to set up your hosting account to use it. In your products list, select Set up and we'll walk you through the rest of the setup process.
Site Setup in ProgressYou've just set up your account. It may take a few minutes for us to configure the account before you can use it.
SetupYour account is set up and ready to use.
Updating SiteYou recently upgraded or downgraded your hosting account, and you'll be able to access your account when the change is complete. If you see this status for more than 24 hours, contact a Guide for assistance.
