I have got registered (not with DH, but somewhere else) both “mydomain.com” AND “mydomain.es”.
For almost a year, I have been managing the “mydomain.com” site as an FTP user in an DH account belonging to somebody else who allowed me to share his disk usage. But now I have purchased my own DH account to manage mydomain.com by myself and have more room to move. And HERE is when problems start to happen. And, as I think I have pestered enough the people at DH support, I’d like to bring them here looking for new ideas:
First problem :
I cannot add “mydomain.com” to my new account because it is already listed in another DH account. I wonder, will I be able to switch it to my account. Of course, I can create the folder “mydomain.com” in my new account, with FTP. But I cannot add the domain in the control panel. Any ideas?
Besides, when I go to my registrar’s page, I have to switch my DNS from ns1.dreamhost.com…to ns1.dreamhost.com, so I wonder if it is really going to change anything.
So, just to keep things moving, I have added the previously unused “mydomain.es” to my new DH account and I try to exactly duplicate my former site, in order to change in the future the name “mydomain.es” for “mydomain.com”. But I don’t think this is going to work…
What solution would you propose me?
I have almost 2GB files in my former FTP (not shell, and I don’t think they’re ever going to give me shell access). In my new account, of course, I have shell access. Do you think is there any way to log into my actual server via shell (using Putty), and then use a command line FTP to grab
the files off of my former server?. And, by the way, which command?
Thanks in advance…
