To be clear, I understand that the current Dreamhost promotional code stuff is only for new accounts, and what’s more I understand why it’s only for new accounts. The prices end up being crazy after the code is applied. Even so, I wonder whether Dreamhost might at some point consider running promotions for current users with slightly less insane discounts. I’m thinking something along the lines of add a year of service at the two or three year monthly price and so on or maybe an occasional 10 or 15% discount. Such a thing would make me feel slightly better about never being able to afford to pay far enough in advance, at least.
Anyway, consider it a “feature request.” It would make a relatively happy user into an even more happy user.
