How to test before migrating to dh


#1

Hi,
I’m migrating from another hosting company to dh.
I’d like to know how I can set up a testing sub domain name to be able to make all the test before fully migrate to dh?
regards,
Fred

Hi Fred, welcome to DreamHost! :slight_smile:

You can add a free test subdomain using your panel:

[color=#00CC00]Domains > Manage Domains > Add New Domain / Sub Domain[/color]

In the Domain to Host field, input:

[color=#0000CC]yourdomainname.dreamhosters.com[/color]

And click the “Fully Host this Domain Now!” button.

Just open a hosting account and add a free dreamhosters.com sub-domain, which will function just like any other domain.

There’s a 97-day money back period, so you get plenty of time to try it out and get a refund if you’re not happy.

I’d congratulate you on typing faster than me… but it’s not really that much of an accomplishment. I think I’m up to at least 40 words per hour. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have to be honest… I cheated and used 3 fingers with that post :stuck_out_tongue:
