I used to have my domain on a friends dream host server. He created for me an username so I can acces it via SSH or FTP. Now I have my own Dreamhost ID. My friend deleted my previous user for me to be able to create it in my own account, but panel tells me the username is not available.
As I could not use my previous username I created a new one, then my friend told me the reason I could not create an user with my previous username could be the user deletion can take several hours to become effective, so I deleted the new user I’ve just created (may be this is my big mistake).
Now the hours have passed and I can’t create an account with my original username nor the last one, so I begin to wonder if my fried was right and user deletion takes a time to become effective and I just did not wait enough time or in the other hand, once you delete an account the username could never be taken again.
Can anyone confirm me if once an username is deleted it can be created again?
