    I just got this website hosted with dreamhost, and I tossed on a wp theme and then i noticed that my domain is blog.website.com

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the <blog> prefix. Thanks alot. Not used to DreamHost, so if u can drop me a line or just tell me where its at would greatly appreciate it. Happy holidays! :)

    don't have dream host, but it has something to do with the subdomain feature of dreamhost.

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    If you are installing with fanatico [sp?] you need to leave the one space blank and it will install in the root [there is an explanation under that part of it.]

    The root is where you want in installed if you want the blog to be displayed when you enter www. yourdomain.com

    If that dont answer your question let me know, I have dreamhost. [i am guessing what you did]
