Add a second host


Is it possible to add a second host to my account?

I thought it would be sensible to host some of my domains on other DH servers rather than the one I was assigned when I created my account. That way if DH have a problem with a server some of my sites will work on the other server.

I can not see a way to add another host (and pay for it). I’d rather not sign up for another account.

Or am I mis-understanding how DH works (that not all my sites are on one server)



The current DreamHost setup is to have all of your websites on one server, and all of your databases on another server. This makes account management much easier. The only way to get a separate server would be to pay for VPS and host some of your sites there.


Thanks Scott – I will read up on VPS
