Prep to transfer domain


#1

I currently host MyMindshare.org here at Dreamhost, and I am planning on moving MyMindshare.com from Godaddy to dreamhost.

Before I point the domain to Dreamhost, I want to fully install the site and test it.

  1. How do I set up the .com domain within the existing .org hosting account?

  2. What would the url be, since the .com domain won’t be pointinG to it right away?

Silly me – I figured out #1, but not #2.

#2 - there won’t be an intitial url, as there would be no DNS entry for it. You can get around this and “stage” the site pending DNS transfer/change as discussed in the DH wiki article on viewing a site before DNS change.. Good luck! :slight_smile:
