Migration of domain to another user (dreamhost to dreamhost)


One of my friends has a dreamhost account which hosts my site. What happens is that now I want to have my own dreamhost account to easy of acces (in case he is unreachable or i want something done quickly) and have some other domains of my own.

I was wondering if it’s possible to just change the ownership of the domain. Meaning, instead of configuring the server, ftp files from one ftp to another, trouble the visitors with downtime, etc, could there be just a simple transfer between our accounts?

We both are ok with that and it would be a lot easier and quicker.


Unfortunately, there is no automated process for doing this. The procedure for moving domains between DreamHost accounts is detailed on the wiki:


Thank you. That will help a lot.
