Will my domain be registered under my name or DreamHost's?
We always register it under your name. You will be paying for the domain, so you will have complete ownership.

Only nonpayment will prevent you from having complete control of your domain. Should you fail to make payment, DreamHost will retain control of the domain --- including the right to transfer, sell, or modify it --- until your balance is paid. Virtually all registrars operate this way. (DreamHost is an ICANN-accredited registrar.)

Even if you stop using DreamHost's web hosting services, so long as you stay up to date on your registration fees, your domain is completely under your control!
