How long until *.dreamhosters.com works?


#1

Hi,

I just signed up a matter of hours ago. How long will it be before my username.dreamhosters.com domain works? It currently doesn’t even appear to have a DNS entry.

Thanks,
James

You need to create a Fully Hosted Domain in the panel.

DreamHost customers can piggyback onto the dreamhosters.com domain for free. Follow the same procedure of hosting “yourdomain.com” by going to the Control Panel, then Domains -> Manage Domains. At the bottom is a Create New Domain (or Sub-Domain). On the next page, use the top box for a fully hosted domain, calling it whatever.dreamhosters.com, owned by your user, then submit the form. You’ll get a whatever.dreamhosters.com directory in your home directory, which you can fill, then wait for DNS to propagate.

Scott,

Somewhere in the wiki it said we can just setup a dreamhosters sub-domain that mirrors our regular domain. That makes more sense if we are using dreamhosters to see our site while we wait for the DNS to propogate. I set my dreamhosters up over an hour ago. It said it would take 30-60 minutes but now I’m sort of giving up.
