I’ve narrowed my choices down to DreamHost (because I enjoy the offbeat newsletter sent each month) and HostGator (which I’m leaning towards).
1 - Hostgator has a website builder application. Does DreamHost have anything similar? I can’t find it.
2 - Is there a tutorial somewhere for getting started? I know how to build sites using GoDaddy or CityMaker, but I really need to be able to go to the next level and have subdomains and be able to upload HTML pages. (I realize that uploading HTML pages conflicts with the website builder, but I need a home page and a couple of other “get excited about us” pages, then each of our clients will have a single subdomain page.)
3 - I’m guessing that having a vBulletin or MyBB forum would not be an issue at all. Correct?
4 - Shopping cart. At some point we will be selling subscriptions. Does DreamHost have a shopping cart available or do we buy something and install it here?
