Here's the story. thanks in advance to anyone who reads this.
I bought some webspace here a couple years ago, but then let my original .com domain that i registered with dreamhost expire.
since that domain had become unavailable, i had to go elsewhere and buy it as a .ca from netfirms.
so now, i still have and am still paying for my webspace here on dreamhost, and i wanted to be able to use this webspace for my .ca website.
i dont know how to go about doing this. I think i'm supposed to change my DNS server and direct to the dreamhost one (the ns1.dreamhost.com and the IP), which i have done already, but i dont know where to go from there.
it's been a while since i've done anything with my website so i've forgotten almost everything.
i dont currently have a domain registered with dreamhost, just the webspace.
if anyone could tell me what i need to do to get my site up and running, it would be greatly appreciated. or even if it's just to tell me that it's not possible and that i should just cancel my webspace with dreamhost and work off the little amount i get form netfirms, which is what i'm thinking of doing if this is too complicated.
thank you so much!
