How do I access my website


#1

I haven’t yet transferred my domain name from my registrar or updated my name servers… I’m not ready to transfer my live site over to DreamHost yet… But I was wondering, how do I view my website without a domain name? 1&1 gives you a sub domain type URL specifically for this. For example: s231170079.onlinehome.us

Thanks!

I’m in the same boat. I am a Mac user and set a new location in network using DreamHost servers but I can’t get anywhere with that location setting.

I’m guessing this is because I am one of several computers behind a NAT router and that router knows the DNS servers provided by my cable ISP.

I can trace and I’m 14 hops from my desktop to ns1.dreamhost.com.

Any hints?
