Hm, thought I posted but I don't see it.
I am moving a domain to dreamhost. I have stored the site in a subdomain. I want the site to redirect to it while I build on root. So,
www.domain.com should point at version.domain.com.
I went to the panel and added a record with the ip for version.domain.com under domain.com. Will that work, is that all I have to do? I see www listed as one of the uneditable records...i made my new record a type a....is there anything else?
