I’m considering signing up with DreamHost. I already have a dedicated server of my own hosted elsewhere. I’d like to use DreamHost to host my static image files.
But what I’d like to do is use a caching reverse proxy (like Squid or mod_proxy) on DH, proxying to my offsite dedicated server. This let’s me use the awesome bandwidth provisions of DH without having to faff around replicating/uploading my assets.
Is this possible with DH? Is this allowed by their policy? I can just install and run up a Squid or lighttpd process?
