URL questions

I’ve gotten all of my website contents uploaded to my directory, but I’m waiting on the domain transfer. If my website homepage has been uploaded to


what would the URL be to view this handywork from the web?

You can set up a temporary whatever.dreamhost.com subdomain and point it to that directory until your domain points to us.


even though everything should be working fine now, you need to first make sure that your domain points to the webfiles directory since the default for me was something like …/home/user/example.com/main.html As long as that is setup right, then what you typed below can be accessed through http://yourdomain.com/main.html

to check the path, go to the control panel, click on domains then click on web. select edit for your domain and you can see where the folder is pointing to.
