Thanks for all the feedback on the 'dreamhosters experience' thread.
Now, for something completely different:
I'd like to give a domain, and a 2 year plan, as a gift to a good friend who needs (and wants) a website.
I'd like them not to know until they log on to their site for the first time on their birthday, but if I register them as the owner of the site, will they not get an email right away from Dreamhost?
Can I set them up as the owner, enter my email address as the contact address, pay for it myself, and then change the contact email to theirs later?
Anyone gift a domain here before? Searching 'gift' in this forum nets zero results...
