Registration not available?

Every time I try to register a domain through DreamHost I get the error message that it’s “Not available right now.” Is this because it’s busy? It doesn’t like me? I was mean to its mother?

It doesn’t show up in the support area as something that is offline or experiencing difficulties.

Can I send it cookies or something so it will play with me? Is there some trick to catching it at the right time? Help?


That is kind of an annoying thing. I think it has to do with Verisign not responding in time with the availability of the domain you’re asking about.

Usually if you just try clicking again right then maybe 2-3 times it then works?
