Accessing your database before switching DNS
To access your database, you will need a hostname. As your domain's name servers are not yet pointing to us, you can't use it to create the hostname.
What you can do instead is adding a free dreamhosters.com subdomain at Domains --> Add Domain (https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=domain.add_domain& ) and then use that to create a hostname for your database.

As I've noticed when using a dreamhosters.com subdomain, it takes a couple of hours after you add the dreamhosters.com subdomain on the panel, until it becomes available.
