We had a chance to use DreamHost’s VPS since we got a task to moving several websites which use DreamHost’s shared hosting to their VPS (Virtual Private Server).
We realize when we want to check some web services which are from some popular businesses such as hosting services, we can use Twitter with the real time status. In this case, seems Twitter is the best choice.
When we purchased DreamHost Shared Hosting, we can add unlimited websites on the hosting as long as you do not use up all arranged resources. When we add a new website, we can either arrange the new website under an existing user (FTP user) or add a new FTP user for the new website, which is the recommended way by DreamHost.
About how to add a FTP user on DreamHost, we mentioned one way in shared hosting unlimited bandwidth was not exact right . Today we are going to have another way in our process of adding a new website.
(Updated on Feb 29, 2016) We can consider to add a new FTP user for an existing website if it runs slowly on DreamHost shared hosting and you set multiple websites under the same FTP user.
Shared Hosting is actually limited bandwidth
We all know DreamHost provides unlimited Bandwidth shared hosting. But actually their hosting servers still have a limit called memory cap. Just because there is memory cap, the Bandwidth can not be unlimited. I think most of shared hosting providers have the same limits.
So your hosting bandwidth is actually limited. Normally the memory cap is on the enough high level for most of websites which do not have huge visiting traffic, so you feel the website is under the “unlimited” bandwidth.
