Very Affordable Blog Hosting with DreamHost

4 May

DreamHost is one of the most popular web hosting companies for hosting your startup blog or even multiple blogs (wordpress or other blogging platform) and why not some other websites. The reason for that is quite simple – you get every feature you may require, including unlimited space and bandwidth at a very affordable monthly price. Here is a bit more information on what you get with each and every hosting account at DreamHost…


The Disk Storage you get when signing up for hosting with DreamHost is unlimited as well as the Monthly Bandwidth you get, even the number of MySQL 5 databases is unlimited for your account. But the unlimited things don’t end up with just that, you also get unlimited number of: E-Mail Accounts (POP or IMAP), Full Shell and FTP Users, Domains and Subdomains Hosted and Forwarded/Mirrored domains. It would’ve been just perfect if you also didn’t have a limited CPU time you can use, but unfortunately you don’t get that and although it is normal for such low price if needed you can upgrade your account with more features. As your blog or multiple blogs become more and more popular and require more resources you can upgrade your hosting account to Virtual Private Server and get some reserved resources just for you. These include more CPU time and RAM just for your needs and you can even get an additional MySQL private server if your websites rely on too intensive database usage.


With every DreamHost account you get support for the following programming languages and additional features: PHP5, Perl, Python, Full Unix Shell, Crontab Access, Full CGI Access, Ruby On Rails, Canned CGI Scripts, Server Side Includes (SSI) and even CVS or Subversion (SVN) Repository. There are also some advanced features that are available for you: SSL Secure Server (requires a unique IP address), WebDAV access, Daily Access Statistics, Access to raw log files, Password Protected Directories (.htaccess), RealAudio and Video streaming, QuickTime Streaming, Anonymous FTP Server (requires a unique IP address), Jabber Chat Server and even Snapshot Data Backups. There are even some One-Click Automatic Software Installers to help you quickly and easily install the following products: WordPress, Gallery, ZenCart, PhpGedView, Pligg, dotProject, Moodle, Joomla, phpBB, MediaWiki, WebCalendar, Advanced Poll. The one-click software installers are especially good, because they help you start your website very fast – you can have a running blog powered by WordPress along with a PHPBB forum in no time at all. The same goes if you want to make a Wiki similar to the one used by Wikipedia with the help of MediaWiki or a Digg-like website powered by Pligg. Of course there are no problems uploading and installing your own blog platform or forum software, but it would probably take more time to do…

And now for the price you’ll have to pay for a hosting account at DreamHost. Now here is something that you should always have in mind and that is you should not get a monthly account! I don’t recommend monthly payment, because then you’ll have to pay $10.95 every month along with $49.95 set up fee which makes the hosting a bit expensive at first. The best idea is to pay your hosting for a year in advance thus not having to pay any set up fees and your fee will go down to $9.95 per month or $119.4 for the whole year. You can also pay for 3 years in advance with $7.95 monthly, for 5 years of hosting with $6.95 monthly or even for 10 whole years with $5.95 a month.
