Trying Out DreamHost

Ever since I could remember tinkering with PHP, MySQL, Apache, WordPress, FTP, and all the light technical stuff about launching personal websites, I was with GoDaddy. This was all before the hype of managed WordPress hosting.

It’s time to try out a different host for this website so I signed up for a month of shared hosting here in DreamHost while our other website, Our Family Adventures, is still at GoDaddy.

So far, here are my notes:

  • GoDaddy – at least once a month, I experience a 500 Internal Server Error; also there’s an error when uploading a site icon in WordPress—it’s frustrating.
  • DreamHost – shared hosting does not have WordPress Multisite—it doesn’t show the interface in Network Setup page
  • DreamHost – https is free for personal websites

I’ll update this page after a month and let’s see if I will migrate all my online assets to DreamHost or continue with GoDaddy.
