Our second “Bling Bling!” sponsor is also a major hosting company with a strong love for WordPress: DreamHost. They are a preferred host over on the WordPress hosting page, and offer a 1-click install with automatic updates for those who don’t want to be bothered by the technical details of publishing with WordPress. In addition to providing WordPress hosting, DreamHost employs a staff member who contributes to WordPress core as part of his job description, which (to me) shows their dedication to the platform. Other things I like about DreamHost are great customer service (I’ve been a customer personally on and off for years) and the fact that they offer free hosting to non-profits.
DreamHost will have a booth in our mini trade show at WCSF, so stop by and say hello!
