My website is live, but Google Search Console says the pages return a 404 error.

When I try to add an XML sitemap for the site adaptivetalent.co or view the Robots.txt file in Google Search Console, it says that the pages cannot be found.

When I try to fetch a page, it can't be found.

Another curious part of all this is when I do a Whois look-up, it says that the domain is available, despite the fact that the domain has been purchased through GoDaddy and the site is live.
