Accessing site through dreamhost.com URL


#1

Okay, complete newbie question here. We just signed up for dreamhost and will eventually update the DNS record so that http://sdcsb.org points here. But until then, how do I access my dreamhost account? I’ve tried http://dreamhost.com/~sdcsb, http://dreamhost.com/sdcsb, http://kinshasa.dreamhost.com/sdcsb, etc. No luck… Help please?

Thanks Scott… I gave it a try but still can’t get it to work. I now have it set up where under “Manage Domains”, sdcsb.dreamhosters.com is shown to mirror http://sdcsb.org (the only option available under “Mirror this site”). I then waited for the 5-10 minutes for the change to take effect, but http://sdcsb.dreamhosters.com isn’t working for me. Other thoughts/pointers?

Give it a few more minutes for propagation to catch up.
