      If you've already set up your domain in Dreamhost's control panel,
      then they're not the cause of the delay. The nature of DNS (the
      global system for domain names on the Internet) is that IP addresses
      are cached, so changes to a domain name's location can take 24 to 48
      hours to propagate across the Internet. Your own Internet service
      provider, the one providing bandwidth to your house, is probably
      caching the old location for the domain name and may continue to serve
      the old address for a period of hours to days. Someone else who hits
      it may see the new location immediately.

      If Dreamhost gave you an alternative domain name that resolves to your
      stuff for setup purposes, I'd use that and continue with your setup
      work. Otherwise, do whatever you can do, and wait on the rest of it
      until the DNS switches over for you.
