Register domain elsewhere and host on DH


#1

Hi,

I already have a domain registered and hosted on DH. Now I’m looking into buying a “special” domain, say something exotix like .io or .pe

These domains can only be registered at the corresponding registration site. They don’t offer hosting at all.

Anyway, I want to host such a domain on DH with my existing account.

Is this possible? And if so, how do I achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

After you register the domain, you would need to update the registration to specify the DreamHost nameservers - see DreamHost Wiki - DNS

Then you go to the DreamHost Web Panel and add the domain (Domains -> Manage Domains). This doesn’t affect registration; this just sets up the DreamHost computers so they know what to do.
