I have 1 domain registered with DH.
I have a 2nd domain ( .ca ) registered with a different registrar and the website hosted by another webhosting company.
I want to rebuild that site on DH and then redirect the domain to point to the DH site, then discontinue the original site on the other webhosting site. I want to do this with the shortest possible downtime
Does this sound right:
- add my domain on DH ( although it is currently being hosted elswere )
- create a directory for it on my account and then populate this with the files for my website.
- redirect my domain registrar to point to the DH servers
step 2 is going to be a problem because I was going to set up the new version of the website using joomla! and I need a live site to do that from. Is there anyway on DH I could set up a joomla! install before I transfer the domain from the old webhost company to DH so that there would be virtually no downtime…
Jeez did that make sense?
