Dreamhost疯了

今天无意发现的.

从现在起,Dreamhost只提供一种主机型号:
500GB空间,5TB流量每月,每周空间大小/流量分别增加 2GB ,40GB!
相应的空间价格做了调整,每年支付为$9.95 /m + 18%+No Setup,更便宜了
每两年支付价格为 $ 8.95/m + 28% off ,比原来略高

最令人震惊的是,每一次性购买十年只需 $5.95 /m !
我在Web Panel里看到,虽然偶现在Dreamhost空间大小还是230多GB,但空间Auto increasing大小也变为 +
+2GB/周,流量+40GB/周了

Dreamhost这次调整与去年把空间大小从20GB增加到200GB相比,影响力更大
但也使人担心DH的overselling情况更加严重

从DH官方博客“Are you older than a Fifth Grader?” 文章里可以找到相关的信息:
那是篇很长的文章(貌似从头回顾了一边Dreamhost的10年历史),我也没兴趣看完,只摘录最后部分:

Fan Gets Hit With It: September 2006

Community Rocks!

That summer there’s more power outages and we have TWO FULL MONTHS of pretty darn bad service. It was pretty sucky all around.

//是指2006年Dreamhost停电事故,据说那次事故中”DreamHost和以色列和黎巴嫩一起成为了TechnoRati的热门关键词”

We did about the only thing we could do.. made a new site all based on “community” and doubled bandwidth and 10 timesed disk again!

//指2007后来DH把空间容量由20GB提高到200GB,流量升为2TB(L1型号)

At this point we’re also giving away 3000/6000/12000/24000 mailboxes and 75/175/375/775 shell accounts. We have a 999 promo code which gives $99.99 off (again, it’s no 777!) and take it a little easy.

//分别指L1/2/3/4型号Dreamhost主机

We’ve got 300,000 domains, 50 employees and a lot of infrastructure stuff to deal with.

Everything Is Wonderful: September 2007

He’s baaaaaaaack! And he’s faaaaaaaaat!

In January of this year, we took a step back. A step away from everything that’s made us who we are, our very essense, and we actually started reducing how much disk and bandwidth we included on our plans.

//Dreamhost从2007年1月起,逐步降低所有型号主机空间初始大小和流量,到2007年9月前,L1型号空间初始大小由200GB降低为145GB

We had (close to) no promo code sales all year, and never upped those quotas a smidge. It’s been very very very painful for me.

//这句看不太明白

Well… sweet release is finally here!

//苦尽甘来?

The Payoff

//回报?

If you’ve read, or at least scrolled, this far… you deserve something!

And here it is.. for the big One – Oh, DreamHost is now offering only one plan! It’s called “Happy Hosting” (though it doesn’t really need a name when it’s the only one) and it comes with 500GB of disk, 5TB of bandwidth per month, and unlimited users and mailboxes, etc, etc, etc…

//现在Dreamhost只提供一种型号:”Happy Hosting”主机,500GB大小,5TB初始流量每月

Current customers immediately get the unlimited users and mailboxes, and their bandwidth doubled. We’re also doubling your existing disk space, but it will be rolled out incrementally. If you want to switch to the new plan, you can today from our panel!

//已有的Dreamhost用户的每月流量将会立即翻番,并且立即升级为无限Shell/FTP user和Mailbox;DH也将增加他们的空间大小,但这是”incrementally”(递增的?)过程

It’s $10.95/month, but if you prepay for 1 year it’s $9.95/month, 2 years it’s $8.95/month, 3 years it’s $7.95/month, 5 years it’s $6.95/month, and 10 years it’s $5.95/month! There may be a crazy 777-ish promo code too (for new customers) if you look around.

//购买10年每月5.95$,有些噱头,另外,久违的777优惠码貌似又出现了

P.S. And, when you renew in 2017 you’ll (most definitely) be up to 12.5 PB of storage and bandwidth for $1.95/month!

//ORZ, 1PB=1024TB !,我不敢想像,这会成为现实吗?在2017?
