Pointing external domains to my Dreamhost account?

I was at mydomain.com looking for domain names (I like their browsing interface) and bought two domains. I have entered ns1.dreamhost.com, ns2.dreamhost.com, ns3.dreamhost.com as the DNS servers for the new domains in MyDomain.com’s control panel, but when I try to add them in my Dreamhost ‘Manage Domains’ panel nothing happens. The page redirects me to the list of my domains but the new ones are not showing up.

One of the new domains is a .us top level domain. I’m assuming that wouldn’t be an issue as long as its DNS was pointing to Dreamhost’s servers.

Anyone have any experience hosting domans that are registered outside of Dreamhost?


I have some .us domains registered. It’s not a problem.

Try a different browser. I’ve had the same thing happen to me sometimes using Safari.


u just have to wait a few minutes.
if within an hour they dont show, try adding them again.
if still nothing, submit a support ticket
