What Exactly DreamHost Wants me To Do?


#4

There are all sorts of reasons why this can happen, but ultimately DreamHost are free to reject an application for hosting for any reason they wish. I know that they prefer applicants from Pakistan to use Google Checkout (similar to PayPal), so perhaps that is the reason. I’m afraid that posting here is not going to help you.

Is not this forum attended by Dreamhost officials?

umm how else can i contact them? and bring my issue to their concern


#6

no, this forum is only DH customers. the best way to get into contact with DH is by using the contact form at dreamhost.com/contact.cgi.

sorry we can’t be of more help.

You could try attaching a small cylinder to the ankle of a carrier pigeon containing your message, but I suspect you’d have more luck filling in this handy form.

It’s a form of psychological therapy that we have to use because our President is a dumbass.

no, actually we were talking about the idiot we call the President of the United States. Besides that, rlparker is the president of this forum, as he - without a doubt, talks the most. :slight_smile: (in the best of ways)

I like to think of my self as the vise president, just checking in once in a while and making a few helpful, albeit short, posts. scjessey is probably the president of the wiki.

I see they’ve let the forum troll out to play today. Getting lonely in your little cave, were you?

#19

btw Jessey thanks your coupon saved me a fortune

I dont understand Dreamhost strategies

If they give 120 Dollar 1 year Hosting for just 22 Dollars then how do they make profit :open_mouth:


#20

They are counting on you being so happy as part of the “Dreamhost Family” that you will continue to host with them for many more years at “regular” prices (which are still great)

It must be working, because they keep growing and some of us have been here many years :wink:

Because the hosting really costs only 10 dollars. ;->

#22

Oh well from next year I will have to pay 120 Dollars?

Thats fair because I have heard a lot and a lot about Dreamhost

Especially I am a blogger and Bloggers seem to love Dreamhost

by the way do these people have down times? big ones?

The main reason I wana leave lypha.com is because of their stupid SMTP which is always down and SQL and Site downtimes

and do Image Hosting sites work good with Dreamhost?

and do Dreamhost sites survive the digg.com frontpage effect?

lol thats many questions but I think I should be clear before making a 1 year + lifetime contract


#23

Yep!

For most of those questions, YMMV. All hosts have downtimes. I have not found DH downtimes to be a significant issue for me and myu clients.

As for “image hosting” site, it depends a lot on what you are hosting and how you are hosting it. :wink: Good code, static pages, efficient MySQL, etc. generally works very well - bad code, sloppy site, etc. not so much (such sites “suck” most everywhere).

Dreamhosters have reported surviving Digg well; other report problems…there are a lot of variable involved in that whole discussion.

There is a lot of discussion on almost all those question in these forums. I suggest you take the time to search a bit through the forums and see for yourself what others have to say. :wink:
