Got hosting? My host is practically giving it away.

On a semi-related note, I just got the latest newsletter from my webhost. I thought they'd already lost their minds once before... But now they've really done it.

They finally ended the triple drivespace/bandwidth quota sale by making those the new numbers... And, because they're really completely insane, they've now started a DOUBLED sale ontop of the now-permanent triple bandwidth and disk space. And to top it all off, they've doubled the amount at which your disk quota goes up each week. (By way of a for instance, my disk quota goes up 120mb a week now.) However, they have ended the half price sale on the level 3 hosting account. (But people like me who already signed up are locked in at that $19.95 a month forever!)

So kids, here's what $7.95* a month gets you right now:

  • 4800mb of disk space, increasing by 40mb each week.
  • 120gb of monthly bandwidth that increases by 1gb a week.
  • Unlimited MySQL databases.
  • 600 Email accounts
  • 75 Shell/FTP accounts
  • 3 hosted domains, 15 subdomains, and 1 free domain registration, paid for as long as you host with them.
  • Other features too numerous to mention...

And that's just the cheapest account they have! You won't believe what the other accounts come with!

*Price is $9.95 a month if you don't pay for 2 years.

I won't pretend I don't get anything for people signing up, but you have 3 months to make up your mind about whether I'm full of shit. And to show my appreciation, you can use the discount code GPMOD25 to get $25 off your first bill. Which would bring two years of level one hosting to a nice round $165.80. You can't beat that. Really, you can't. I know, I've looked. That's how I ended up with Dreamhost. :P

btw, their quota increase is retroactive. I now have 17040mb of disk space.

I honestly think the only way this deal could get any better is if they built your site FOR you while scantily-clad <insert opposite sex or whatever floats your boat here> served you drinks with little umbrellas in them. Well, with one-click installs of site frameworks like Mambo available from the contol panel, you've almost got the first part covered. And with the money you save with DH's insane deals, you might be able to do something about the latter half, too. ;)

I feel it's worth mentioning that I've been a more than satisfied Dreamhost customer since February, and plan to stay with them for the forseeable future. (Who wouldn't?!)


nani sore?
A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
