i went ahead and signed up. i have previously forwarded the domain name to a server in San Diego where i have a personal account. it was $100 a year.
is it possible to forward the domain name to a directory at Dreamhost ?
the Dreamhost web panel shows me as having -
new database ~ wwswimming_forum
hostname ~ mysql.wwswimming.com
BUT wwSwimming.com is domain forwarded at the registrar i registered it with, whom i generally like.
when it says, "The domain must use our DNS", does that mean that you have to transfer it, no other option ? that is, forwarding from the current registrar is -
A/ not allowed
B/ just a real bad idea.
or ... noticing the "You should do any nameserver changes (e.g. to ns1.dreamhost.com, etc) before transferring", do i just need to go to my current registrar, tell the control panel there that i want to use "ns1.dreamhost.com", and then it's off & running ?
