Transfer existing domain to Dreamhost but not right away


#1

Hi

I have an existing blog hosted on wordpress.com, but it has a separate .com domain. I want to move the blog to Dreamhost and eventually move the domain, but i can’t move the domain until it’s all complete and blog content is migrated. At the same time, I don’t want to purchase another domain from Dreamhost. What’s my best option?

Thanks for help in advance.

Basically you add your domain in the panel, then create a mirror of it on a dreamhosters.com subdomain, so that you can see it before you change the DNS.
