Support » Fixing WordPress » Creating a safe testing environment (with domain?)

  • Hi there,

    I am looking at moving over my blog from to self-hosted via (with Dreamhost).

    Current URL:
    Domain via GoDaddy: (redirected to; expires August 2012)

    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 blog;
    + both the and domains are pointing to the old blog on

    Is that possible? Can I set up a domain and then change it to 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.
