Transfer Hosting Description
In order to transfer a domain you already own to be hosted with DreamHost you have to make sure that the domain's DNS Servers are set as follows:

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

To do so, you'll have to contact your domain registrar - that the company with whom you've registered your domain - and find out what their procedure is for changing DNS settings. We can't do it for you unfortunately, since the Domain is your property, not ours.
