How to get website up in middle of registration transfer?


I need to get my website up asap at, but, the registration transfer for 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

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


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

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’.
