Recommend Coldfusion for Dreamhost

Published March 30, 2007 on adamfortuna

    Talking with someone from work today about my webhost had me investigating some of the many features that have gone unused on my account. They have great support — either through tickets or their wiki , subversion wherever and whenever you want, the ability to one click install loads of things, you can install trac , Ruby On Rails and just about anything you could ever want. To be honest, they support everything I want with one glaringly obvious exception — Coldfusion. I just noticed though they have a "Suggestions” section in their control panel (Home > Suggestions) where members can vote on features to implement. If you're a Dreamhost customer, vote for it! Unfortunately it's been on the suggestions list since 2004 so I'm not expecting much; but hey it won't hurt to vote it up! I also added my votes for some other cool things like one click trac install and a handful of other interesting sounding features. Dreamhost has been amazing so far, which makes me stay a loyal customer. There aren't too many services online I can say that I pay for, which means they offer some great services. I am anxiously awaiting when MediaTemplate offers more than just a tease of their ColdFusion services, as the rest of their setup looks very impressive. I'm still looking for a ColdFusion host though, so if you have any suggestions please let me know. The only real requirements I have are CF 7 (hopefully upgrading to 8 when it comes out), apache and multiple domains. Note: If you want to sign up with Dreamhost and want a full discount, you can use the promo code fortuna_waived which gives as much money off as possible ($97 if you order the 1yr plans). In other words I don't make anything and you get full discount. Your second year will be full price I believe. Only thing you have to do if you sign up with this is vote for ColdFusion. ;)
