promo code

New Charge:      $119.40          (1 year of L1.)
- $77.00          (squarefree "Waived setup fee or $77 off")
Due Now:        $42.40

Just to see what my price would be without the promo code, I went back and removed it.

Little did I know that I would get an even better deal *without* it!!

New Charge:      $119.40          (1 year of L1.)
- $95.40          (coworker "Special co-worker deal")
Due Now:        $24.00   

It detected that I put "coworker" in the (optional) "How did you first hear about us?" box. I was just being honest! Little did I know that that was some magic word!

How to make mydomain.com hosted there

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/KB_/_Domains_/_Transfers_/_Transfer_Hosting :

In order to transfer a domain you already own to be hosted with DreamHost you have to make sure that the domain's DNS Servers are set as follows:
  • ns1.dreamhost.com
  • ns2.dreamhost.com
  • ns3.dreamhost.com
To do so, you'll have to contact your domain registrar - that the company with whom you've registered your domain - and find out what their procedure is for changing DNS settings. We can't do it for you unfortunately, since the Domain is your property, not ours.

They're honest (and have a sense of humor)

Can host yourdomain.com with them even if your DNS provider is someone else (like zoneedit.com).

They tell you what IP address to point to (actually, they give you 3).

It's not your own dedicated public IP!; it's shared with others, using their load balancing and server sharing. But I don't care! As long as I can point mydomain.com to their host and have it work, I don't care!
