I'm getting ready to move my site/gallery/estore to dreamhost.
I'm preparing to build a new joomla site and estore using PDG ecommerce software.
I need to set up a "working site" to build the joomla and store before we switch the domain from the existing old site hosted by earthlink.
Do I need to et up a dreamhost.com subdomain site first and then when the new site/store I'm building is completed (in month or so) on dreamhost, switch the domains and set up the SSL?
present site is www.drowningcreek.com
