Recurring billing

My brother has an account on dreamhost, as much as I’d like to start a new one, I don’t due to we use it for storing alot of junk of ours, that brings me to the question.

My brother can’t pay for it anymore but I can with my credit card, I don’t think he ever used a promotion code to get a discount, or pay the setup fee, if I added my cc to the account is their a way to apply a discount code to it to keep it alive?

discount code can be used only on account creation, on the first hosting.

However i don’t think they link a CC to a given account.

If it’s not your account, and you don’t need to keep the same domain, it would seem worth it to take advantage of the ongoing “Sale!” with a new account of your own. Only available another day, according to today’s blurb.

From the homepage popup:

If you do decide to open a new account, there are ways to transfer your ‘junk’ directly between accounts without downloading and uploading it again. One option would be to ‘zip’ the contents of the old site, make the zip file web accessable and use WGET to transfer the file, before unzipping it under the new account.

If the credit-card has not been used before with DreamHost, it may be better just to sign-up for a new account using a promo-code.
