I am not a coder or developer.
"Someone" registered a URL with Dreamhost.
Site went down because it had expired.
Finally contacted "someone" via e-mail to get him to pay the fee.
"Someone" is willing to transfer ownership to me.
He has initiated the process on his end. However, I do not have a Dreamhost account.
How can I create a Dreamhost account so that the transfer can be completed? I have started the steps. but then I am required to select a financial plan. If the site is already hosted, do I have to pay?
P.S. I am trying to do this for a friend, who has even less knowledge than I do.
