I just signed up with Dreamhost and my account came with one free domain name. Anyways, when I filled out that part of my sign up I must have misread because I thought that if I already had a domain name that Dreamhost would renew the domain for another year. Now I realize that I would have to transfer my domain registrar to Dreamhost which I don’t want to do. Does this mean I am screwed out of my free domain?
Also, I have changed my DNS infor at my registrar and given it time to propogate. However, when I try to view the files I’ve uploaded in a web browser I get a 500 Internal Server Error. I can connect to FTP using mydomain.com just fine. I can also connect to mail.mydomain.com as well as access my database through the web panel. However with the domain I used to create my account as well as a second that I added via the control panel I get nothing but 500 errors.
I submitted a help ticket, but no one has responded yet. Is this sort of thing typical of Dreamhost? If soo Id like to find out before my money-back period runs out.
