Dreamhosters.com Subdomain

A Dreamhosters.com is a  FREE subdomain you can create to build your new/dev/test site on. If you do not have a domain, or want to a new site without taking your domain down, you can use a dreamhosters subdomain.  You can also build a test/dev site off your current site if you want (if hosted here).

 If you want to create it on your current domain, check the following link to see difference between subdomain and subdirectory:

Start by going to your Manage Domains Page :

Mange-Domains

You will need to add the domain to your hosting.:

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Add_a_domain

Pick a unique name, then add dreamhosters.com to it:

example.dreamhosters.com

newsite.dreamhosters.com

dreamhosters-example

You can fully host the domain, I used a mirror to test a wordpress site.

 Once you have set this up, the dns will still have to propagate.
