Support » Installing WordPress » to Did I do this properly?

  • Hello,
    Recently I joined to create a website. I “upgraded” through to have my own domain through them.
    I realized that has the kind of editing I prefer over
    So, I went to dreamhost and became a new member then added the same domain name on their site so I could create a website through dreamhost.
    I went back to and changed the nameservers to point to dreamhost.
    Did I do this properly? It works! but I want to make sure in adding the same domain to dreamhost that I have on is legal… there a different way I should do this? Thanks!

    If you own the domain, you can do anything with it you want: host it where ever, park it, sell it. See Moving a Blog —

    Kevin, it’s totally legal and okay to do what you did 🙂

    You can move your website to any host you want, and is just that – a web host. Transferring your domain to DreamHost (or anyone else) is not only legal, but encouraged if you can’t find the right fit.

    If you need any help with your site on DreamHost, let us know. We’re happy to help you out.
