Transfers Description
DreamHost provides two types of Domain-related services, Domain Hosting and Domain Registration.

These two services, although closely related, are actually separate things. You can use DreamHost to host a domain but not register it, or register a domain but not host it, or to both register and host a domain!

If you have an existing domain name, you'll need to transfer either the hosting or the registration over to us, depending on what you'd like from us. Please read the corresponding section below for more information on each process!

Who can blame you? The best way to do this is to first transfer the hosting to DreamHost , and then, when that is completely successful, transfer the registration .
