I love Dreamhost

Post by RyanVM » Sat Jan 07, 2006 5:10 pm

So they just upped my monthly bandwidth quota to 1TB/month and the disk quota to 20GB :shock: :D

What that means is that in the eventual future I'll be moving everything back to ryanvm.net (instead of ryanvm.msfn.org). Should make everybody's life easier again :).

While we're on that topic, I'd be happy to refer anybody who wants to sign up for the same hosting plan while they're still offering the special. It's a great way to help support my site as the referral bonus goes straight to paying for my hosting which expires at the end of February. To sweeten the deal, I'll even give you a $50 off coupon :)

PM or email me if you're interested.

I've gotten $4,000+ from them for making ONE post in an online forum. I even told everyone I was getting referral credit for it. This was before they let people make their own custom coupons. I just received $200 from them today via Paypal. lol.

So yeah, call me bias, but I HIGHLY recommend them.

I've almost gotten enough referrals from this thread to up my hosting to an account which would give me a lot more breathing room on the bandwidth quote. In February, I used a bit over 800GB of the 1100GB I get per month. With 2 or 3 more signups, I can up my account to one which provides 1600GB per month :)

Wow, you're only getting $47 per signup, huh? That's impressive to have gotten enough to upgrade your account. gj. :)

I've got enough referral credit built up (along with a pro-rated refund that would come from refunding the current year's subscription fee) that I only need 3 more referrals to be able to upgrade the hosting.

So, who needs a boatload of bandwidth and disk space (and a free domain!) for a really cheap price? One year of hosting which provides 20GB of space and 1TB/month of bandwidth would only cost you $69.40 with the coupon I'm offering! That's a bit under $6/month. Not too shabby ;)

Can you provide some more details of whats on offer with this package - i.e. Windows 2003 hosting with ASP, compiled CGI, PHP, Perl, SSI, virus & spam protection - or - Linux hosting with PHP, Perl, Python, SSH, virus & spam protection ?
Can non-US people use it and can we get a .US domain from outside the US with the package?

I'm pretty sure they run Debian on most of their servers. Here's a list of the services they offer with each hosting plan.

I know they're open to non-US people (heck, at least one of my signups is from halfway around the globe and I also know that BtS uses them). I have no clue about the .us domains, but I'm sure they could tell you if you contact them directly.

I'm sending a PM, but if anyone spots the reply first, I could use a referral (Read that as "fat discount coupon" :wink: ) My host doesn't treat me that nicely, and I host 2 seperate large accounts with them.
