Hosting Providers

The following hosting providers meet the minimum requirements for this course. Both offer one-click installation of WordPress and FTP access, which we will use extensively throughout the course.

  • Dreamhost – DH is built for power users. It allows for unlimited data and bandwidth, along with unlimited domain names and users under the same account. If you know that you’ll be using your hosting service long after this class is over, DH is probably the best choice. One caveat – to get the advertised price, you have to sign up and pay for a full 2 years at a time. The price goes up the shorted the amount of time you sign up for.
  • A Small Orange – ASO offers small plans with short time periods. Their Shared Hosting “small” plan is probably sufficient for most users, and can be upgraded later if you need more power. The other advantage to ASO is that you can pay monthly, and cancel once the course is over if you don’t want to keep going. Be sure that you sing up for a “Shared Hosting” plan, and not “Reseller Hosting”.
