Lesson learned from my end.
DreamHost has been really good the last three years. This is the first time that anything this dramatic has happened, and WOW what a pain.
I've sent them more question from my end and a little explanation of what happened, but I haven't heard back yet.
If i don't hear back from them, I guess I'll be on my own, which will really suck considering my Hosting Plans have also been changed - plans that aren't even for my site - that are on 10 year terms paid on a monthly basis - like $1,000 for some shite like this ... This is something DreamHost will have to eventually deal with and contact me for since i had already paid for my web-hosting on a yearly basis - I'm paid up for until mid-2010... good thing I have records of this.
The one thing i am very surprised about though is that DreamHost allowed all my information to be changed after i had contacted them to let them know that my account had be jacked ... I am very disappointed by this. They should have at least frozen the account so no changes could be made until things were resolved. Not impressed at all.
anyway, like i said, lesson learned.
