arguments for DreamHost.
A group I belong to is building a site that will run a SQL database. Well, we have three MS employees and they’re making things difficult. The group is an ideal candidate for linux/mysql but the MS employees want this site hosted on MS servers using MS SQL - even though two of them admit they don’t know anything about the subject.
I’m suggesting mySQL & apache (specifically DreamHost) but they want price comparisons with windows hosts. A friend of ours has a hosting company but wants $100/mo to do on Windows with MSSQL what we can do for $10/mo on dreamhost.
