Hi all - I’m trying to decide if DreamHost is right me and my Sister. The thing is I don’t know anything about html, ftp, or maintaining a website. This is a whole new world for me. I have “built” mom-n-pop web pages on yahoo, but that’s about it.
My goal, for now, is to build a simple website that will advertise my Sister’s new business. I have a (free) site at yahoo for her already, but she wants her own domain name. She said people are complaining about the long url—it’s www.geocities.com/(name). In looking at DH, it’s obvious that I’ll get MUCH more for the dollar than Yahoo’s starter plan. This is great, but if I don’t know what to do with it, does it make since to buy into it??? Eventually I’ll learn, but she needs something up right away.
Yahoo offers a (1) domain name, (100) sub-domains, 5gb disk space, 200gb data transfer, 200 e-mail addresses, site builder, free templates, no ads, some other features. Trying to find out if DreamHost offers some kind of site builder or templates (fingers crossed) and will I see those pesky ads on the site. I’m interested in the “Crazy Domain Insane!” plan.
Any input or suggestions would be great appreciated!
