Ok i put in a request for a transfer but it say it can take up to a week so do that mean i have to wait til then to get my site up and running

You can upload/work on your site before the transfer (see wiki article linked below), but the site content hosted at DreamHost will not be publicly viewable using your domain name until the transfer has completed.

http://www.wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/DNS_-_Viewing_site_before_DNS_change

Personally, I would advise you not to follow the advice in the wiki article for viewing the site before the transfer, unless you have a reasonably good understanding of how these things work, as you could just end up more confused. :wink:

You might want to verify that the contact email address listed for the domain is valid and you can receive mail on that address, as the approval email for the domain transfer will be sent to this address.

Good luck.
