Trying to sign up using a sub domain

I am having a domain transferred to me from a current Dreanhost client and want to sign up, however, it seems I can’t sign up for any services without a domain to register.

I was told I could sign up using a Dreamhost sub domain, and was sent a link that doesn’t work. I’ve been searching the site for a while and have yet to find a solution.

Any help or ideas?

if your signing up for shared hosting, the second page does let you bypass the domain selection.
