How to get website up in middle of registration transfer?


#1

Hello,

I need to get my website up asap at www.mydomain.com, but, the registration transfer for www.mydomain.com from Network Solutions to Dreamhost has not completed yet. Is there any way I can get my website up before the transfer is completed?

How does one go about hosting a website at one place while the domain registration is kept at another place?

My website is ready to go, I just can’t access it at www.mydomain.com.

Is there anything I can do, or the old registrant can do, to get my site up asap?

Thanks!

Log into network solutions and change the nameservers for the domain to

ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

Then wait 12-24 hours.

Above assumes you have already added the domain on dreamhosts ‘manage domains’ page. That page should show the domain as ‘fully hosted’.
