Problem with dreamhost


#1

Hi,

I am having trouble signing up, can anyone help me please?

https://dreamhost.com/signup

Do you know what might be the problem?

hi avondale, i guess you need to specify your problem. Or we can’t help you.

some people do have problem during signing up. you may want to refer to some of the posts in the forum http://discussion.dreamhost.com/showflat.pl?Board=curious&Number=67757&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=14&vc=1

When I click on the link, the page is blank and I can’t sign up. =\

It works fine on my machine.

I guess you just need to wait a while for the page to be loaded. You may also want to try to Refresh the page.

However, if your internet connection is low, i’ll suggest you not to sign up because some problems may happen during the transaction especially when you are making the payment.

Find a place which provides reliable internet connection and try to sign up again. It should be quite straight forward.

Which “link” are you talking about? The link in your original post (https://dreamhost.com/signup/) works fine for me, and results in a sign-up form for you to fill out.

Are you not able to see that form, or is there another lilnk you are talking about?

https://dreamhost.com/signup/ should work–it just did for me. You can also try the link in my signature, but they should both bring you to the same place (the link in my signature has my referrer code)

Ok guys thanks for everyone’s help, I will try to figure this out all it says is The connection has timed out

The server at dreamhost.com is taking too long to respond.

  • The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
    moments.

  • If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network
    connection.

  • If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
    that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

That sounds like a connection problem that could be anywhere along the connections between you and Dreamhost. The page is being served; you are just having a hard time reaching it. That could be temporary, or it may be a problem of some kind with your routing.

Depending upon the reliability of your connection, Nathan’s suggestion to use a more reliable connection for the sign-up process might be a good idea! Good Luck! :slight_smile:
