In this example, we will set up the domain using DreamHost Services.

Step 1

Add a domain to your account, select DNS

Step 2


Step 3

Confirm the cname record

Step 4

Step 6

Then we create a new entry in the control panel for "" and set up a "forward" on that!

Step 7

Put in a request on the using a custom domain name page in the section "Domain Requests"!
