How long does it take for DreamHost to register a domain name for you?
Doesn’t take that long. I think the root servers updating takes anywhere from 24 to 48 hours. No way around that
I am still waiting for mine to work after four/five days (four or five days depending on which part of the world you are in).
I have taken your advice. And I am now waiting patiently for a response from Support.
Eight hours later and just when I had moved to 3rd place in the queue, I received a series of messages (bearing good news) from DH. :-)) Upon hearing from DH, I quickly withdrew my request for support; nonetheless, Support (Brian) still got back to me with a friendly and assuring response.
Well done, DH!
