Question About Hosting


#1

I am looking into hosting with SSH for a small group of people who need to run a custom server program which will open a port on the server. So far DreamHost is at the top of the list. My question is, do any of DreamHost’s plans allow me to run a custom server program mentioned?

Thanks,
Chester

Short answer… depends what the process is - but we don’t guarantee that we’ll allow this (especially if it causes problems) - if this is the primary reason you’re setting up the account, you might want to look for somewhere that explicitly allows this.
