Ames is the most tech-savvy, frugal shopper I know. If something is on sale at a great price she will know about it. As part of her daily quest for righteous deals, she found a thread on one of her discount sites that said that the 777 code on dreamhost is back.
This is the code I signed up under when I switched to dreamhost last July that gave me my first year of their L1 (Crazy Domain Insane) plan for only $.77/month. That amounts to one year of hosting and a domain registration/transfer for only $9.24. I figured that was only a one time deal, but I checked it out, and apparently they’ve re-activated it:
All you have to do is:
- Go to the signup page.
- Click the “L1: Crazy Domain Insane (20GB disk, 1TB bw, $9.95/month)” radio button.
- Click the Automatically bill me “once a year. (No set up fee!)” radio button. (You can change this preference from your account once you’re signed up.)
- Choose your domain option and fill out your info.
- Enter 777 in the “Promo Code or email of who referred you” box.
- Check the I agree to Dreamhost’s TOS and Anti-Spam policies checkbox.
- Click “Continue to secure payment…”
As I’ve said before, I’m very happy with dreamhost as my hosting provider. Although their referral program is great incentive to send people their way, I recommend them regardless. You just can’t beat their price and feature set…and at only $9.24 for a whole year, you might as well do it just to register a silly domain like monkeysmakemehappy.com. Did I mention they have ruby on rails installed? Perhaps monkeysmakemehappy.com would be an app to keep track of all my imaginary monkey friends…or not – they like to roam free.
