This weekend I’ll be switching my hosting for nathanandfiona.com. So please excuse any downtime we have. Fiona will make sure I get this up again soon! Thanks to Sandy for hosting this for so long even though I had my own hosting.
I’ve already started the process and pulled by domain registration from 1and1 to DreamHost, my favorite web host.
**Beginning shameless plug, cue infomercial voice**
DreamHost is far and away the best web hosting that I’ve used OR heard about (and I’ve done a fair amount of research). It’s intuitive, easy to use, and most of all — affordable. And for you, yes you, it’s even more affordable for the first year. Use the DreamHost coupon code ‘OS40′ to save $40 of any yearly package. Hooray! But does DreamHost do monthly billing? That’s quite a chunk of change up front. Yes they do, and you can use that same code and get the $49.95 setup fee waived for month to month hosting (yearly packages have no setup fee).
Save $40 on DreamHost web hosting — Coupon Code: OS40
Hosting packages include a bunch of free and ever expanding features including:
- one free domain for life! (com/net/org/info)
- One Click Installs and Upgrades
- 500 Gigs of disk storage, plus 2Gb every week!
- 5Tb of data transfer (that’s a lot)
- Unlimited domains hosted (that’s a lot too)
- Funny Monthly Newsletters (I read it every month)
- SSH access
- Unlimited email accounts, MySQL databases
- AND, you support the hosting for this and many other sites just by using my code, OS40!
**end shameless plug**
Seriously, I love my hosting.
If we’re friends and you still want some hosting but don’t care about a free domain and just want the special “My Awesome Uncle Nathan will totally hook me up” discount… let me know, we’ll work something out. :)
** Update ** Server changed. Later and took longer than I wanted. It was a pain, had a coworker help me through it. Not everything is back to normal yet (sidebar) and I’m trying to convince the Mrs. that we should change our WordPress theme. What do you think? I really don’t think anyone’s going to read this update so please make your presence known in the comments.
