Transfer existing domain to Dreamhost but not right away



I have an existing blog hosted on, 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 subdomain, so that you can see it before you change the DNS.
