Time for Dreamhost DNS to clear
How long does it take for the Dreamhost DNS to clear? I had a sub-domain that I deleted, but I decided I would prefer to keep the sub-domain up and have it redirect to the main site. I tried adding it again, but I get "Error!
You can't add that domain: already in our DNS system
"

Is it a matter of hours, days, or more?

RE: Time for Dreamhost DNS to clear
If it's not listed on your "manage domains" page in the panel, open a ticket with support. While it may not be instantly re-available it shouldn't be more than 10-15 minutes. One would assume you waited at least that long before posting to a forum to ask.

Indeed I did wait that long. I'll open a ticket, thanks Smile

EDIT: I got a reply."When domains/sub-domains are deleted
in the control panel it usually takes about 3 days for the DNS
information to be flushed out of the system."

Hopefully that info will be helpful for others in the future.

Hi eday,

Just what I was wondering thanks for posting the update.
