I’m a new DreamHost customer and in the process of transferring my existing domain + hosting from my old registrar (Dotster).
Dotster offers (paid-for) WHOIS info protection via privacypost, but it turns out that emails sent to that privacypost address are bounced with a “550 unrouteable address” error. (awesome privacy, but not very useful!)
Of course I noticed this after requesting the transfer, so I can’t get the transfer approval email. Is there any way to reset the transfer request, or do I just wait for the request to expire?
I tried just doing the request again, but DreamHost wants to charge me for it (the web form assumes it’s an extra domain) so I cancelled.
What’s annoying is that during this time my website is no longer accessible (and probably won’t be for the next week or two) since I changed the nameservers to point to DreamHost before the transfer…
