It has been a day since the other person has removed the domain from their DreamHost hosting environment. It has been almost a week since the nameservers for the domain have been set to those of a different hosting company entirely. Now I want to host the domain on my own DreamHost hosting environment, but for some reason, I get this permissions problem.
Do the nameservers for the domain have to be set to ns*.dreamhost.com before I can add a domain name to the hosting environment using the control panel? I would have thought that would not matter to the panel code.
Very odd. I'll contact support, I think.
