I have the domain name “foo.bar” registered with Network Solutions. It was hosted with Ball 'OWax.com. I have a new domain hosted here at DreamHost, “new.bar,” now serving pages.
I wish to have any visits to “foo.bar” be automatically redirected to “new.bar” here at DreamHost. I have already configured .htaccess at “new.bar” to rewrite any request for “foo.bar” (or “www.foo.bar”) to “new.bar.”
I’m wondering what are the next steps to take. I want to avoid having an “under construction” page appear for visits to “foo.bar” if I set up the domain as an additional “Fully Hosted” domain using my “new.bar” control panel.
Do I add “foo.bar” as an additional domain by clicking “Add Domain” in “Manage Domains,” then (on same page) set up a redirect to “new.bar?” Does it cost extra to “Fully Host” a domain redirect?
Do I then instruct Network Solutions to point “foo.bar” to DreamHost nameservers accessed via the “DNS” link under my “new.bar” domain name in “Manage Domains?” Have I asked all of the questions that I should? Thanks for advice!
