Hmm. Have you tried registering a domain through this url?
Do you not have an account or do you not have a full hosting account? What was that account number you gave us in your original post? I think it's led many repliers here to think you have an account. In other words, do you have access to the DreamHost control panel through someone elses account or something?
Anyway, this is probably one of those topics that most people here don't have direct experience with because most of the readers of this board have hosting accounts at DreamHost. If you contact DreamHost support through the following form, I'm sure they'll be able to help you!
