without having to pay 30 bucks a year to renew it
Is it a .cc or .ws or something else strange? Why is it $30 a year
go to one of the companies that don't rip you off and just pay for 10 years for > $10 a year if you want to hold it for a while.
so what if i buy from them, do i have full rights to the name/domain as if it is mine?
yeah, good idea, pay $100 a year to get a domain that costs $30 a year for free
it's kind of like a "lease" where you have full rights and control as long as you renew it every year. You can sell the domain as well.
Have you ever registered a domain?
first you don't post affliate links in here, that could be viewed as spam and you can be banned for that
and second at you suggesting dreamhost
nothing wrong with dreamhost, I've been with them for 6 years and I have 47 sites hosted on a shared account, sure most of them are just small 1-20 page affiliate sites...but still they all work fine.
Some people say that dreamhost oversells, but it's a load of crap. There are usually 25-30 sites hosted on one server based on reverse ip tool I used. And they are all simple 1 page sites for random people that use 0 resources.
So usually my sites are the most used on that server.
Granted, when you use a big database driven site it's a little slow. But you shouldn't be using a shared host if you are using a database in the first place.
Im also with dreamhost - been with them for 3 years I think they are great - top notch for service
A good quality shared hosting provider is perfectly capable of hosting reasonably busy, database driven websites.
Only low quality shared hosting you will struggle with this - Dreamhost, Justhost etc.
just ignore you are breaking the rules
and there is everything wrong with them
I'm just saying if you are going to be creating a DB driven website, you might as well splurge a little and pay the $40/mo for VPS.
not breaking the rules....I posted the same exact link in OT subforum like 5 years ago. Noone cared about it, in fact I had something like 200 signups with it
but even if it is against the rules. a) this forum has no moderators...so it's obvious noone cares about this forum b) even if I get banned ...I don't think I'd care...seeing how I barely post on OT anymore.
I find that the only people saying negative things about dreamhost are those who never used them for themselves or those who used them a long time ago, when they were just 3 guys in a dorm room.
wow you are an idiot, just because this forum has no mods does not mean no one cares, I am a mod and I am telling you that you are breaking the fucking rules, so since you don't want to delete it, enjoy the ban
and you are wrong about dream host, I used them 3 years ago and they were shit then and I had more downtime with basic sites, than I had uptime with them
Your logic is totally flawed.
More like a case of user error.
ban for mentioning dreamhost
go back to trolling the trailer park
the only error on my part was to pay for a year up front with them
and you defending dreamhost makes them even more shittier in my book
They seem to revel in their own technical incompetence on their own status blog... was funny for such a large company hosting company to have just one router, and for them to be surprised when it had a problem and their whole network was down...
If you have anything other than a very basic, personal website I would not recommend dreamhost.
I didn't defend Dreamhost.
I pointed out that your post was logically flawed, just as your next one is to.
Please, if you have nothing of value to add don't post, your only making yourself look more stupid, again.
you are the one that is not adding anything of value to the conversation
And this is what exactly?
take your own advice
thanks for the info guys
pepsi,thanks for the awesome trolling in it to take it ot
fuck guys we all used to get along so well I love you
