The Big 4-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!

This week’s stats from WebHosting.Info shows that DreamHost have reached another milestone. They are now hosting more than 400.000 domains.

Last January they passed 200,000 domains, in July they reached 300,000 domains and the last 6 months they have continued their growth with tremendous pace. This means that they now have doubled in size in less than one year.

    I’ll let you in on a little secret: We became evil a good 2-3 years ago – and uncool a year or so earlier than that.

    If you get rid of all the domain parking servers, DreamHost is actually around fifth.

    It would be interesting if somebody could do a set of statistics that excluded “parked” domains (if you can define this somehow in a sufficiently rigorous manner) to see where DH stands for true web hosting.

    Parked domains are hosted with a domain parking services, right? Not with a normal web host.
