I’ve lately become a Dreamhost client. I host my personal web, my band’s web and, soon, the org.lliure.cat web. The last is an organization that campaigns and promotes free-software in the Catalan administration. Well, so far I’m very happy with it and I highly recommend it. They are very cheap and have grate customer support and community. The site is entirely run by free software. Debian is the operating system, you have Apache, of course and many great web publishing systems: WordPress, Mediawiki, Gallery. Other goodies include php5, mailing-lists, etc.
They have an interesting discount schema. Enter my referral code: PAUARUMI when you sign up and you will save 60eur ($77). In return I get 15eur ($20) referral discount. I used this system when I joined and it makes the first year only 33eur ($42). Absurdly cheap! All clients can create referral codes, when you create one you have to decide how to split $97 between the you and the referee.
