取消用了两年的dreamhost(dh)虚拟主机

dreamhost的虚拟主机用了两年,终于决定取消了。

总体来说dreamhost还是挺不错的,不限硬盘不限流量不限网站数量相当有吸引力,当然这里的不限是有条件的。

之所以要取消,并不是他不好或者不稳定,相反他们相当稳定,技术支持也很专业,快速,面板更是强大。

取消的原因一方面是因为他们的ip是共享的,这样就会有很多的ip突然被墙掉,然后网站无法访问,虽然可以自己换ip,但过程还是比较麻烦的,特别是网站多了之后根本就懒得这样折腾换ip了。

另一方面是因为他们对于资源限制太过严格了,例如内存占用突然超了就会把你的进程kill掉,相当不爽。如果说长期占用资源肯定是不行的,但有时候备份什么的总会短时间占用高cpu、内存,这样就过于严格了。我给他们提意见让他们允许短时间占用较多cpu、内存,他们说不能这样做。

取消的时候确认提示相当有意思,很值得学习。内容如下:

Please don't go!

If you complete this process, your entire hosting account will end immediately!

(If you want to close your account at a later date, please just return to this page on that date)

Closing your hosting plan means ALL domains you have hosted with us will stop working right away! Also, everything related to your domains will stop working: email addresses (including forwards), mailing lists, jabber accounts, databases, etc.

Remember too, your account has unlimited disk and bandwidth!

Are you sure you want to lose all that?

Not to mention, if you close your account you won't get the awesome newsletter!

You won't get blah, blah, blah... Okay, you get the picture. If you've already made up your mind, so be it! We won't stop you and if you ever change your mind and want to re-open your account with us, we'll be ready, no hard feelings.

Yeah yeah, I know. I'd still like to cancel.
