i have what i hope is a really straight-forward question:
i’ve had my domain hosted at dreamhost for a while now. when i signed-up i didn’t take advantage of the “free name” offer, instead sticking with the xxx.dreamhosters.com name instead.
however i recently decided to register a domain name, again here at dreamhost.
that all seemed to go smoothly, but what i can’t work out is this: how do i “link” this name to my hosted domain? is it something to do with “DNS”, “A Records”, or some other such hocus-pocus?
or is it simply the case that i just have to wait a few days and everything will happen automagically? (i only registered the name a day or two ago and if i try to visit it at the moment i just get an “address not found” error page.)
i’ve tried looking on the wiki for info about this but i couldn’t find anything. any help from anyone in here would be much appreciated!
