Viewing site while awaiting domain transfer


#1

I’ve sent this in to support, but with over 400 tickets pending, perhaps someone on the forum can help me faster.

Is there any way to view my content on DreamHost while I await my
domain to transfer? (completion is expected by Sunday, that’s a long
wait!)

I tried several variations on .dreamhost.com, yoda.dreamhost.com/,
but nothing seems to work. I read in the KB that you offer free
subdomains with every package, but I sure can’t seem to figure it out!

Thanks

Yes, the way to do it is to have a *.dreamhost.com subdomian mirror your actual domain. They keyword that many forget is “mirror”.


MacManX.com

How do I set it up?
I try adding omlettex.dreamhost.com as a mirror from the add domains section, but get this error:

Another user owns dreamhost.com. If you’d like to manage this domain you will need to log in to the web panel as this user.

Ah yeah… we actually just changed our system to no longer allow free dreamhost.com sub-domains, but rather dreamhostERS.com sub-domains.

We realized we needed to save these dreamhost.com sub-domains for things like server names and what not!

Sorry there hasn’t been an announcement yet, we’ve been swamped… just try it again with omlettex.dreamhosters.com.

josh!
