Web hosting you can count on

Sometimes in life, things just work out.  The redesign of my blog was one of them.  I had been wanting to switch over to a .com for quite awhile, but it seemed like a daunting task so it kept getting put off.  Then, I get an email from Dreamhost asking if I wanted to do a review.  I received a gift code for $119 which was enough for a year of web hosting and a domain name.  Umm, yes please!


However, this also meant getting my butt in gear and choosing a name.  Yikes!  After asking for your opinions on a few names, I ended up with something that wasn’t even on the list.  Yay!  Then, I could begin my transfer of all of my old posts and everything else.  Scared, I could still screw this up.

Dreamhost, Our Piece of Earth

Anyways, getting the site set up was so easy.  Dreamhost emailed me with step by step instructions on getting started.  It took no time at all to do.  It said I was ready to go, but I couldn’t login.  An email got me a very fast response, I’m talking less than 3 minutes.  They just had to manually approve it which was taken care of very fast. Then, following the step by step instructions, it walked me through logging in, getting my blog transferred over and seeing the new site.  If you are transferring from another host, they walk you through that as well.


The best part – at least the best part I have decided on so far – is that I don’t have to upload my photos somewhere else and then upload them to my blog.  Saves me a step that was time consuming.  I can just save them to my computer and upload them to my blog.  Way faster which means a much happier blogger!  When I first realized this, I thought it was awesome, but then I was concerned that it would be like it was at the old site.  Once I uploaded so many, I would have to start uploading them and then transferring them into the post.  But guess what?  I don’t have to do that.  And, I don’t have to worry that I will end up doing that.  That’s right, with Dreamhosts unlimited storage I can save myself a lot of hassle.  And, you can get your domains straight through Dreamhost as well.


As you may know from reading my blog, our family is attempting to go green little by little.  We also love supporting green businesses and as I was writing this, I stumbled on this little bit of info that I was happy to know.  Dreamhost is a Green Site.  What does that really mean?  Basically, they are doing what they can to replace what they are using.  For now, that means buying Renewable Energy Credits and Emission Reduction Credits.


For just $8.95 a month, you can get unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth and more.  Plus, your purchase is backed by a 97 day guarantee.  If you do run into a problem, their customer service has been fantastic for me.  Plus, right now, you can get your first 2 weeks FREE.  Ready to make the switch to Dreamhost?
