Okay, so this is somewhat of a long story, but I’ll start from the beginning.
A client registered a domain with GoDaddy. I wanted it transferred to Dreamhost.
I made the mistake of deleting the domain from my GoDaddy webhosting panel and then trying to register it on my Dreamhost panel. After a lengthy wait on a tech support response, I was told something about domains being held for a period of time, then being released to the public to claim again. This period, however, would be over a month, so I would not be able to register the domain on Dreamhost for a long time since I had cancelled instead of transferred it.
A later call to tech support resulted in the return of the domain to GoDaddy. I then went through the required procedure to transfer to Dreamhost.
I went through and selected full hosting for the domain in my web panel, and about a week ago it told me the changes should take effect soon.
However, my problem persists: I can’t access FTP for the domain. Under manage domains, it tells me (under registration) that the time remaining is unknown. When I try to visit the domain, it shows me the domain being parked by GoDaddy.
I have never gone through a transfer before, so I’m at loss for what to do. This website needs to be finished by November and ads have already been placed advertising this specific name.
Help would be appreciated.
