How do I transfer my hosting from or to Domainitron.com/DreamHost?
To move your domain to a new hosting provider is simply a matter of changing the name servers associated with your domain registration! Your new host will be able to provide you with the correct values for these name servers. Ours are:

ns1.dreamhost.com 66.33.206.206
ns2.dreamhost.com 66.201.54.66
ns3.dreamhost.com 66.33.216.216

To change your name servers, you have to go to the registrar where your domain was registered and follow their instructions for doing so.

For domains registered with us, simply go to the "Domain > Registration" area, check off the checkbox next to the domain and click the "Modify Checked" button. Submit the change of name servers on the form that appears. Your name servers will be changed within 20 minutes.

Once making a name server change it takes 24-72 hours (or even longer) for all dns servers on the Internet to notice the new information! For a while, some people may get sent to your old host when they try to go to your domain. You should just be patient, eventually the changes will propogate everywhere!
