I’m very new to this so apologies if this is a stupid suggestion.
I recently purchased a .io domain name from dreamhost. This was paid for 6 days ago.
It is showing in my account as “parked” but is still showing as available on other sites and when I type in the domain there is no dreamhost hosting page.
I have also recently bought two domains from godaddy. As soon as I had purchased my domain was unavailable from other providers with a godaddy hosting page.
So why is this different via dreamhost? As far as I was aware the initial purchase was for me to own the domain - just like has happened via godaddy.
I’m not ready for the website to go live yet (6 months away) I just want to know the name is mine for use in the future.
PS I have emailed support twice about this and had no response so any help would be great.
