View page during free trial?


#1

Hi all - I am working to move an existing website over to Dreamhost and would like to test whether it works for me during the free trial period. How can I navigate to a page on the site without transferring the domain? Is there an server path name or ip address I can plug into my browser?

Thanks!

You can setup a free sub-domain and upload your site files to it.

[color=#00CC00]Domains > Manage Domains > Add New Domain / Sub-Domain[/color]

Add something like mydomain.dreamhosters.com

Does that use up any kind of discounts or freebies that I might want to use for my actual site later?

The trick is to create a subdomain. I’m sure these articles will help

No, you can host as many domains and sub-domains as you like :wink:
