dreamhost backups prohibited
Authored by: abobrow on Jan 01, '08 03:21:32PM

I just found this out accidentally when I emailed DH a question about my account. I mentioned I was using it for backup and the tech politely advised me to remove my backup before the admins found it.

I did a little research and found Bluehost.com gives you 600GB of storage and expressly states that it's okay to use for offsite backup. I cancelled Dreamhost and switched. I don't like the bluehost control panel as much, but it works.

Update. Bluehost froze my account with no warning for using my space for backups. I told the tech their TOS did not prohibit this use, but he directed me to a page that says exactly the opposite. I don't know if they changed their TOS or if I just missed it the first time.
