For a few months I’ve had a been hosting a website with a domain name under a friend’s DreamHost account - he set up a username on his account and sliced me off some space.
It’s been running fine and dandy, but since I want to have my own space, I’ve gone and signed up to DreamHost myself. My first choice of username was taken, due to the user in my friend’s account, but apart from that everything has been set up smoothly.
I’d like to transfer the site and domain from the friend’s account to my own, but have no idea how to go about this. I wanted to take advantage of the “4444” promo which ends today, hence not waiting for a solution before signing up.
I’m sure the website content itself can be transferred manually, and I can go into the domain records and point them to the right places… Is there anything else I should do, or some easy way to transfer it all?
What about things like webmail? (not using google apps for this site)
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
