I currently have a .net domain hosted and registered at Dreamhost on a shared hosting plan of the type ‘My Crazy Domain Insane’. It has been like this since august 2007, and has worked flawlessly. Thank you for a great service.
I have been tasked to build two new websites. The domains are both *.dk domains. They are currently held by the parties for whom I am to build the websites.
The first domain is currently registered and hosted at the danish registrar and webhost dandomain.dk. The second domain name has been bought through the registrar gratisdns.dk and is not hosted anywhere at present.
I wish to host these two .dk domains on my dreamhost account
My first question is: will the domain registrants (my clients) have to transfer ownership of their domains to me, for me to be able to host them on my dreamhost account?
Assuming that this is the case, once ownership of the domains have been transferred to me, what is the process for transferring the .dk domains to my host here at dreamhost?
Lastly, once these domains have been transferred, how will they show up in my file hierarchy? At present, my domain has a folder named after the single .net domain that I host here. will additional .dk folders appear automatically once the hosting transfer is resolved?
The DH FAQ specifically mentions .dk domains at
“[ns1|ns2|ns3].dreamhost.com are now registered with DK-hostmaster (earlier only nsX.newdream.net were). This is tested to be working with 2 .dk domains.
An excellent guide to domain re-delegation can be found at http://www.gratisdns.dk/?size=400&side=51 (in Danish)”
I have read the guide, and am frankly a bit confused as to how this method works. Am I required to use the gratisdns.dk nameservers to have a domain hosted at dreamhost?
