The D#/G chord is a D# Major chord, with the G (the 3rd) as the bass note. The 3rd of D# is actually the note Fx (‘F double sharp’). However, because Fx is harmonically the same as G, it’s easier to refer to the note as G (even though it’s technically incorrect).
The chord is also referred to as D# over G, or D# ‘slash’ G, or simply, D sharp with a G in the bass.
Technically, the D# Major chord with the G in the bass is a first inversion D sharp Major chord.
