Why does the sign up button take the user to the free trial?


Why does Dreamhost make it hard to go straight to signing up? The button on the front page for sign up takes the user to the Free Trial. The page that describes the hosting only has one action as far as I can see: sign up for free trial.

What if I want to go straight to buying a year’s worth of hosting? Where does a user go?

Honestly look at the page right now, can anyone tell me how to sign up through any means other than the free trial? Every button I click takes me to a ‘free trial’ page.


You sign up through the free trial. Once you sign up, you should be able to request the 1 year.
