For a new site I recently decided to launch, I needed to find some web hosting. The site will be more of an experiment than a real thing, so I didn't want to throw too much money in it. But the thing is, I also feel the need for features most cheap hosting providers don't include in their basic offers. I just can't live without an SSH access, for instance. So, I started to search for the dream offer, and … w00t ! I think I found a kick ass deal.
What I bought :
- a domain name, registered for one year
- 4800 MB of disk storage (increasing each week by 40 Mo, that will sum up to 6880 MB in one year)
- 120 GB of monthly bandwidth (+ 1 GB each week)
- Unlimited number of domains or subdomains hosted on this account
- Unlimited MySQL db, email aliases, …
- Full Unix shell with SSH access ! And crontab ! Couldn't believe it till I was logged in :)
- Awesome support ! Sent one mail, got a replied 8 minutes later with a relevant answer
- Really complete control panel with more features and 1-click-install software than I'll ever need
How much is that you ask ? For all these things I've paid exactly … $23.88 for the whole year.
So, here comes now the blatant affiliate link which is truely worth it if you ask me : I've bought this account at DreamHost. This is their basic offer with the following trick : pay for one whole year at once (or two years) and enter "888" as a promotional code. They are celebrating their 8th birthday which is worth 80% off the bill (could be time limited, I'm not sure).
God I'm pleased and excited :-)
