I wrote that review on June I think, 3 months have passed by and Dreamhost Apps has improved a lot than I expected. At the time of my review there are actually no good themes, no plugins. But now, they have some of the best themes such as Copyblogger theme by Chris Pearson. Also, Dreamhost has added some very useful plugins like Re-Captcha, WP-Shortstat, Extended comment Options, Trackback validator and more.
But there are some drawbacks with Dreamhost apps, as I mentioned in my review. I would like to remind you about them again for the sake of people who are not aware of Dreamhost Apps.
No writable file permissions, implies
- No ads. No money.
- Cannot edit themes, plugins.
- Cannot add new plugins as you like.
- No FTP access etc.
I don´t care about money, I love blogging.
If you are that kind of person, then Dreamhost Apps is for you. Just pay for domain every year (about $10) or use a free sub-domain, yourdomain.dreamhosters.com that´s it. Right now, Dreamhost apps is still in trial beta period. Anyone can signup for free. I am sure that they´ll improve Dreamhost Apps a lot. After the beta period they´ll be accepting new invites only through invitation code. This is the best time for you to get Dreamhost apps account now, Use it or leave it, it´s your wish, because getting it for free will be easy, rather than begging someone for an invitation code later. Join Dreamhost Apps now.
