I cannot see my domain hgchicago.org, hosting of which I have attempted to transfer to DreamHost. Possibly this is just a matter of propagation delay. But is there any way from my accounts at DreamHost that I can see I have things properly configured?
I had a domain hgchicago.org hosted at A and using registrar B.
I wanted that domain to be hosted at DreamHost but still using registrar B.
Following the instructions here, I now have the site at hgchicago.dreamhosters.com. It is ready enough and works at that URL.
However, I did not understand the section “Mirroring A Domain” at the abovereferenced page. I saw no “Mirrored Panel,” and don’t know what mirroring is supposed to accomplish. I figured it is just a temporary fix so I did not pursue it.
The site now being ready enough at the subdomain, I had the domain redirected to the dreamhost.com nameservers. I know it takes hours to propagate, but I thought that until the propagation is completed visitors might be directed to the old site rather than the new one. I was evidently wrong about that, as for the past few hours I get the message "…can’t find the server at www.hgchicago.org."
Thus my question, how do I know whether I’m just waiting for propagation, or I have set up something incorrectly at DH and need to fix it?
