I’m definitely not new to webhosting but I’m very new to DH.
All I want to do is verify I’ve got the hang of the way DH operates referencing its file hierachy (where my pages live) but I’ve been trying for hours now without success.
I have my DH account setup & approved. I can login to server ‘aquaman’ via ftp and upload files to my gigwig.com domain directory so I’ve stuck a simple index.html in place for test purposes… But now what?
I read elsewhere on the support wiki that I can’t just reference http://aquaman.dreamhosts.com/~steveharman as I’m used to elsewhere nor can I use http://aquaman.dreamhosts.com/~steveharman/gigwig.com so how DO I reference my HTML?
I don’t have my domain hosted by DH and in an ideal world would prefer to keep it elsewhere and point the DNS entry at my DH server address. Is this possible? In any event I’d be eternally grateful if someone could put me out of my misery by pointing out the (probably) stupid mistake I’m making here.
I’ve never had this much trouble getting something as simple as web hosting setup before but am happy to believe it’s something I’m doing wrong and not DH.
Thanks in advance,
