I have some questions about Dreamhost. Currently I have a shell account over at Kirenet. I get unlimited shell disk space over there and 1 GB of web space. You say that you get 4.8 GB of disk space, is that public or private space (or is it shared between both)?
What type of shell do you offer? Can I run an IRC client like bitchx from it? FTP? Lynx?
I currently have my own domain name which I just parked at Godaddy and forwarded to my Kirenet web address. If I sign up with Dreamhost, I can have it so I can just have www.mysite.com seen facing the Internet and not something like www.dreamhost.com/~somesillyalias.
