How long for a webhosting accont to be activated?


Hi - I’ve just paid via Google Checkout for a webhosting account here at Dreamhost. Roughly how long does it take for the account to be activated? (i.e., as they say, for the order to be shipped).




It’s now up and running, and I can get into the webhosting account OK. But I want to register a domain now - which I didn’t do on sign-up - and I’m getting the message that my account has yet to be “approved”. What exactly does this mean??
