I purchased a domain name from namecheap company. Currently, my web application resides in http://dbarisakkurt.webfactional.com/booksite/ address. I want to type www.acikkutuphane.org (my domain name from namecheap) and my web app to be opened from that address.

This is my settings from namecheap.com and the IPs are webfaction IPs. IP Address: 108.168.213.81 Record Type: A (Address) IP Address: 178.79.142.142 Record Type: A (Address)

I followed the doc here: http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/domains.html Pointing Your Domain to Webfaction's Servers and Adding A Domain to Control Panel

I did this 4-5 hours ago and still it is not working. I only see a page with text OK when i type www.acikkutuphane.org.

What should i do?

You've created A records using our nameserver's IP addresses. If you want to use WebFaction's nameservers, change those A records into NS records. If you want to use Namecheap's nameservers, point a single A record at your WebFaction server's IP address (shown on your control panel Dashboard).
