Host someone else's domain


#1

Someone else owns the domain. (Let’s say they bought it through DH.)
I will host their site (nothing exists yet).

What do I need to do to host their site under my account while they retain ownership of the domain?

What do they need to do to point their domain to my directory?

Is it true that Dreamhost does not offer DNS services when a domain is registered but no hosting plan is purchased?

If they’ve registered it under a different account, all you need to do is to add it as a domain under “Manage Domains”.

This is achieved in step 1 above. You’ll specify a web directory when you add the full hosting for that domain.

Yes, but I’m pretty sure when you do the above, your account will be “providing” the DNS services for that domain, so that will be a moot point.
