- 50 GB Free Personal Backups
As previously written about, your web space is only intended for your websites and not for personal backups. Now every customer is offered 50 GB of storage for backups. The only caveat is, it will be hosted on a separate server, under a separate user account and DreamHost will not backup your backups. If 50 GB is not enough for you, extra space is only $0.10/month per GB.
- First week of DreamHost PS free
When you sign up for DreamHost’s VPS solution DreamHost PS, you set your own memory limit and pay accordingly. Since it is nearly impossible to predict how much memory you will need when you start out, DreamHost now offers you the first week at maximum memory possible for free. After a week the memory will automatically be adjusted to the right level for you, unless you already have adjusted it manually.
- Control Panel Demo
If you’re yet to sign up for hosting at DreamHost, you can now try out DreamHost’s own in-house developed control panel before you sign up at https://demo.dreamhost.com/.
- Getting SSL certificates is easier
It’s now possible to order GeoTrust SSL certificates directly from the Control Panel. Previously you had to email the certificate to DreamHost, so the new integration is going to be a lot easier. The price for a SSL certificate is $90.96 a year + $47.40/year for the unique IP (but you can save up to 30% on the certificate by prepaying for multiple years).
- mod_fcgid and xcache for PHP
DreamHost PS users can now choose to enable PHP xcache for great performance boosts. Check your DreamHost PS settings.
