Bought domain name and


#1

I bought a domain name through a registrar other than dreamhost. I want the name re-directed to a page on my blog. Where is it that i make my changes at? Through Dreamhost or through registrar?

And is it DNS changes i am making or nameservers?

I’m confused about this. Please advise.

There are several ways of doing this, but since you’re hosting here at dreamhost, a pretty straightforward one is to change the nameservers for your new domain to dreamhost, then add hosting for that domain as a redirected domain, redirecting to the url for the page that you want to redirect to.

Yep, make it a redirected domain and set the URL appropriately. (to the page on your blog where you want it redirected)
