Account Approval

How long does it generally take for Dreamhost to approve an account? And for that matter, why does it have to be approved? Seems like I pay them, account gets set up, end of transaction.

They have to check all signups in case of fraud. Many accounts are approved immediately, but some questionable signups may take a little longer before they become approved.

I registered my domain with another registrar, and I signed up for hosting here 3 days ago. Maybe they are slow on weekends? I don’t know. Every other host I’ve tried had things set up within 24 hours.
