You can't add that domain: you don't have permission to add


#1

I have added all the stuff to my godaddy.com account. I previously had another account under a different email set up with dreamhost for this site. But decided to stop that one and keep this domain as a test domain and want to add it now to my dreamhost account. But I get the error
You can’t add that domain: you don’t have permission to add
What do I need to do. The domain is sellingsaintlouis.com

The text of the error message seems to have changed a little bit, and not for the better.

If you still have access to the old account, make sure it’s the domain has been deleted off the manage domains page of the old account. That might help, or might not be possible.

You may also have to contact dreamhost support to free the domain up. Since Dreamhost is not the registrar it won’t be a quick solution. Support will basically pass you to the security and abuse team to verify ownership of the domain, once that’s done then they can free up the name so that you can add it to your new account.
