Whats my URL before I get my domain name?


#1

Hi,

so I haven’t decided on the name of my new project yet (so don’t have a domain name), but need to install wordpress and start working on it. When I am setting up a one-click install, I am asked to put in a domain. And I cant seem to find what I can use here. It seems all very strange to me that this would be so hard to find…

Something like:
http://208.113.218.13/home/username/xxxxxx
or
http://elbridge-gerry.dreamhost.com/home/username/xxxxxx

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated.

You will need to set up some sort of domain on a temporary basis. If you don’t want to commit to registering a domain name yet, you can create a subdomain of dreamhosters.com for testing for free (e.g, mortenlu-test-domain.dreamhosters.com).
