Domain Transfer to 3rd Party



One of my clients, who was hosted on my account, now wants to move to their own dreamhost account.

I am aware that I can not move the domain from my account directly to theirs and be a referrer. If I move the domain to a third party, can that domain then be hosted on another dream host account?

I only ask because this looks like it might be a common occurrence and I’m wondering if I should set up all my domains with another provider so it is smooth transition from being a sub account on my dreamhost plan to their own hosting plan.

I also do want the referral bonuses for all the sites I will bring in and would prefer to stay with dreamhost.

I’m sure this problem has come up before but I haven’t seen this solution suggested or discussed.
