I have had some experience with other hosting companies maintaining a Wordpress site and several HTML sites that I built. Now I have started a DreamHost account, and wish to maintain a couple of sites that I will build in Joomla.
I am not sure where to begin, so I wanted to post here and hopefully get some direction.
Q1) I didn’t get my free domain name at the time I signed up. Where do I go to select that now?
Q2) Once that is selected, it seems that I will need to attach my Joomla install to a domain. Will it then work with other added domains, or is it a separate install for every domain you host?
Q3) Is there a post here that has a walk-through or pointers for the Joomla install? I don’t get the option for a Simple Install - only the Custom Install, and that freaks me out a bit.
Q4) Where can I find a post that gives me more info on how to add and setup other domains?
Q5) Can I put up one of the websites as an HTML site and then rebuild it later in Joomla?
Thank you all in advance for your help. I am very unsure of myself as I proceed, so any help/direction is greatly appreciated!
