Dreamhost subscription?


#1

I’m thinking about signing up with DreamHost for the base Level 1 $9.95
plan. Does anyone think that’s a bad idea?

I’d like to know others thoughts, and who they recommend for RoR
hosting?

Thanks!

Well, while DH is fine for hosting your Rails pet projects or
Typo-based weblog, I wouldn’t recommend it for a fully-fledged
production app with lots of traffic. I keep having issues with
lighttpd and spureous Error 500 on my apps with no apparent reason
–though things have become better over time.

On the other hand, there are many DH discount codes available on the
Net (there was a page in the Rails wiki, if I remember) so giving it
a text drive -sorry!- is really unexpensive. Being the risk near
zero, why not give it a try? Plus you get 20GB of disk space, svn,
ssh access…

I use if for my blog and it performs perfectly (even though my home-brew
blog if far from perfect!)
