I’d like to change the URL of my site to a new domain I’ve just registered, and since I already have the site up and running I’m looking to just point the new domain URL to the existing site. Both the new domain and the site are with DreamHost.
So I made a custom DNS A record pointing to the IP address where the old site is hosted. When the new domain URL loads up the old site I’ll decommission the old domain.
Is this the best way to transition?
