I’ve got a question about the best way to have a simple URL for my wordpress blog.
Here’s the scenario: I have a domain registered with go-daddy, and I have a wordpress blog installed on my dreamhost site. In order to have a pretty URL for my blog (just something simple, like www.myblog.com), I set up domain forwarding from go-daddy. From what I understand, this is essentially the same as the domain cloaking available in dreamhost: when you type www.myblog.com in the browser, the requests are forwarded to mysite.dreamhosters.com/myblog (while keeping www.myblog.com in the browser address bar).
My question is, is this the best way to have a nice pretty URL for the blog (or for any other part of my site, for that matter)? Or is there something other way to configure the domains? The only benefit of transfering the domain to dreamhost is the ability to manage it in the same way from the dreamhost panel, right?
