I’m very interested in signing up for Dreamhost. This looks like a great host and group of customers.
I registered a domain at Godaddy 26 days ago. To transfer my domain, however, Dreamhost is telling me I have to wait 60 days until after I register it.
My website is new and I want to switch to Dreamhost so my domain isn’t just a redirect (I’m using a free host right now that will only let me host one domain). Google doesn’t seem interested in indexing my redirect.
So what should I do. My domain is a .com. I could register the same domain as a .net and use that one but then that would mean I would have to start all over again with my marketing and getting people to link to me if I wanted Google to rank the domain higher. Also, doesn’t Google rank .com domains higher than all the others?
Godaddy has let me change my domain servers in the past before 60 days was up in the past. Could I just register a new domain with Dreamhost when I sign up, transfer my .com domain, and use it as my “default” domain?
