How long does registration take?

Yesterday I signed up for a dreamhost account for a URL I already own. I have a few sites hosted at dreamhost, and they all went through immediately. But for this one, I received neither email confirmation of my purchase nor access to the web panel. I can’t log in, I can’t do anything.

I’m not sure if I missed a step, if I need to do something on my current site (it’s a site right now, but I will be upgrading to once this all goes through), or if it just takes a few days.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I had hoped to be on working on my new site this weekend!
