Excellent, it sounds like the application went through. Re-submitting the application in such cases is not always straightforward, as the system tends to throw errors such as 'credit-card already in system' or 'domain not available' and this usually requires an email to DreamHost so they can purge the information from the system.
Thats totally understandable, there is nothing worse than completing an online transaction and not being totally sure that things worked as they should.
As I said in my previous post; When I signed up I don't recall exactly what I was shown at completion, but I don't recall being confused and I am sure I would have remembered if I was sent back to the sign-up page without explanation.
I suspect that what you have experienced was some kind of temporary 'glitch' in the system.
Hopefully you will soon receive a reply from support or the confirmation email and you will be good to go.
