Yes! DreamHost are Overselling and they acknowledge it! “yes, we are overselling” they say! you don’t believe me? here’s the link to the official DreamHost Blog post where they admit it and claim that it is is the right and smart thing to do in the webhosting business!
Overselling occurs when a host offers a plan to clients with huge features of disk space and Bandwidth for a low price but is, in reality, unable to provide all that amount of ressources hoping that the client (or most of them at least) won’t use all those features! This often come with CPU usage restrictions!!
Dreamhost are offering for just $7.95/month:
-1 FREE domain registration www.yourname.com
– UNLIMITED domains hosted
– UNLIMITED subdomains
– 20 GB Disk, 1 TB Transfer
– 3000 Mailboxes, 75 Shell/FTP Users
That’s huge for that price!! but it seems to work very well! They even have a Ruby on Rails hosting which is a bit slow but seems to be OK. They are among few webhosts that offer Ruby and Ruby on Rails Hosting.
I’ve read many good posts about them, I’ve read bad ones and they are not really my favourite hosting company! I am planning to buy a plan from them as they offer RoR hosting as I said above while my current host does not!
