Default i see a single website

So, Finally i am getting somewhere.

I followed catdudes suggestion and edit my /etc/hosts file and add
www.mysite.dom and mysite.dom to the line which assigns my ip address as follows:-

vi /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
xxx.xxx.xx.xxx server1.mysite.dom server1 mysite.dom www.mysite.dom

Save the file

then lynx http://www.mysite.dom

brings up the homepage I downloaded via ftp earlier.

Hurrah !!!

all i have to do is transfer accross all the e-mail accounts now...urggg...then transfer accross the domain name to the new ip....
