Hi sorry I’m a bit of an amateur when it comes to this stuff but I was wondering if anyone could clear up a few things when it comes to registering a domain and hosting it.
I registered some domains with a different company and then a week or so later I discovered DreamHost and their plans persuaded me to change to them. Anyway so today I signed up for the trial shared hosting with DreamHost and clicked the option saying I already have a domain. I didn’t transfer it to DreamHost.
I went to my login at the company and changed the name servers to the dreamhost nameservers for my domains. I then went to DreamHost panel and added hosting for them and they now are live.
What is stopping anyone else with dreamhost adding my domains to their account and hosting something with my domain name? I didn’t get prompted to enter a special code or anything when I added the domain to the dreamhost account. Could anyone easily add my domain to their account and start messing with me? What securities can I do to prevent this?
I’m still relatively new to all this but it just confused me.
