I am looking at moving over my blog from WP.com to self-hosted via WP.org (with Dreamhost).
Ideally, I'd like to:
- have no downtime,
- transfer the domain name from Go Daddy to Dreamhost and set it up as my primary domain for self hosted, while:
+ I test 2 themes for the purpose of the wp.org blog;
+ both the wc.wp.com and w-c.com domains are pointing to the old blog on wp.com
Is that possible? Can I set up a TEST.com domain and then change it to wholesome-cook.com when I'm ready? How can I create a safe testing environment?
I'd like to have it mostly worked out before I import my WC blog's content over.
Thanks for any help offered, I hope it's not too confusing.
