I’m looking to switch my hosting from another provider as dreamhost offers more features I want, but I’m not sure which plan I will need.
I currently run have 3 domains. Two are just used for personal websites, the other is one I created as a favour for a church. The combined bandwidth and disk space usuage at present is well below the rate offered by DH’s entry level offering.
However, I wish to create a new domain and a new website for a friends shop, and will need all the facilities for processing credit card orders online. Does this mean that the ‘Strictly Business’ plan is a requirement, or would it be more cost effective to start with the ‘Crazy Domain Insane’ and buy seperate componants such as the SSL certificate and static IP address? Is everything I need available seperately?
I was thinking of starting with a 2 year plan, but wouldn’t be able to do that for the top level plan, if that makes any difference to the calculation.
