A friend is currently hosting two wordpress blogs for me and he uses dreamhost. I have purchased my own hosting account now, and I want to move these domains within my own hosting account. Anything special I need to do other than add a domain? Will that effectively “move” the blogs without messing anything up? The DNS servers are already pointed to dreamhost. Thanks.
If you purchased your hosting account with a promo code, it’s highly unlikely they’ll let you move the domain over. This is to prevent people from hopping from one promo code to the next when their promo expires.
That said, you might need Support to help with this. They might even be able to do the entire move for you, but you should have your friend first back everything up:
