Thanks for your response LakeRat. I did contact support and received the following extremely prompt action and response:
Sorry to hear you're having problems with your account:/
It looks like there was an apache configuration issue. I manually ran an

You also may want to flush your DNS (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Flush_DNS)
and clear your browser cache (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Clear_cache) if
you’re still unable to view your site functioning properly.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you.
If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us again!
I'm back up and running when I use google chrome, but still have the same redirection issue when I try accessing the site via Internet Explorer. If anyone has any advice on cleansing explorer, I'm all ears. Thanks.
