That is your problem. Since you did not transfer the domain registration to DreamHost, Yahoo is still managing the domain registration. You need to use Yahoo services to modify your domain registration so that the name servers point to:
Then everything should be working. If you don't know how to do this, ask Yahoo.
This is they way it works:
- user browser wants to access 'equicentral.com'
- user computer uses DNS to get IP address for 'equicentral.com'
- DNS gets IP address from name servers shown in domain registration
- user computer opens connection to IP address
- user browser requests web pages for 'equicentral.com'
- web server at IP address finds the pages for 'equicentral.com' and sends them
So again your problem is Step #3 - the name servers in the domain registration are the wrong ones.
The DreamHost name servers already have your domain entry:
prompt>nslookup equicentral.com ns1.dreamhost.com
So apparently you don't actually have a problem with DreamHost at the moment. Once you get your name servers updated and the information is propagated, you should be able to access FTP and get your site back up.
