Hello, a friend of mine just registered an account with dreamhost (I will call it "our account"). No domain hosted with her (our) account yet. Now, we want to build the site (using wordpress), test it and then change the DNS. I checked several posts here in forum including wiki: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/DNS_-_Viewing_site_before_DNS_change. However, these posts doesn't seem to answer my problem or I am missing something. The wiki article assumes there is a domain registered with the account already, right? The domain we wish to host with this account is already hosted in dreamhost - but different account, different user (FYI, domain is registered by my friend). The domain is hosted on her friend's account and they agreed that she will host this domain herself now. Well, I tried to add the domain from web panel, I got error: "domain is already registered in dreamhost".
What should I do? Basically I want to do two things: host the domain with our account and test it before DNS change. Can you please help? Although I am not new to web I have no experience with dreamhost.
I hope I was clear with the description of our problem, English is not my native language. Any help would be really appreciated.
