You need to create a Fully Hosted domain and then upload the files to your domain folder (example.com).

how do i make a fully hosted domain


#5

Here’s where to do that:

https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=domain.manage

A fully hosted domain is automatically set up for you when you sign up, though, so — unless you deleted it from that page — chances are that you already have one.

ok, i have all that and login into it and im on my fhd, and have 4 folder this last one being example.com and under that is my files i up loaded. now do i make/move that file to example.com


#7

If I understand correctly, you are asking which directory you should upload your files to. You should upload your pages to example.com directory as this is your domain directory.

Here is how DH manages directories.

  • Each user has its user directory /home/username
  • Each domain has its domain directory in its user directory. /home/username/domain.com
  • If user manages multiple domains, it would be /home/username/domain1.com and /home/username/domain2.com

Web pages should be uploaded to the correct domain directory.

Hope the above helps a bit

what i would like to know is what i have to do from there

Your html files belong in the runya.com folder. That’s assuming that your website is runya.com. There should already be a quickstart.html file in that folder. And one of your html files should be index.html so it gets served as the main page of your site.

*edit - k, i moved the file to ruunya.com, now how do i make it my webpage?

should i delete quickstart.html?

Rename mike.html to index.html and get rid of quickstart.html.

It appears that you registered ruunya.com at GoDaddy, but did not set the name server to use DreamHost DNS.

Log into GoDaddy and update the Name Server entries to use DreamHost.

i got it renamed, but haveing trouble changing the name server

The appropriate nameservers for your domain are:

ns1.dreamhost.com ns2.dreamhost.com ns3.dreamhost.com

Set these and nothing else.
