Ruby On Rails Hosting You Cannot Resist

I was looking for Ruby on Rails hosting and found this amazing offer from DreamHost. This is just unbelievable. Consider this:

  1. Disk Storage at signup - 178.5 GB, automatically increases weekly by 1 GB
  2. Monthly Bandwidth at signup - 1.785 TB, automatically increases weekly by 16 GB
  3. MySQL Databases: unlimited
  4. E-Mail Accounts (POP/IMAP) - 3,000
  5. 1 free domain name
  6. Domains Hosted -  unlimited
  7. Full Unix Shell
  8. Ruby On Rails
  9. CVS Repository
  10. Subversion Repository (SVN)
  11. SSH access
  12. WebDAV, Frontpage, Streaming
  13. 97-day money-back guarantee
  14. Host reliably with 18th-ranked web host in the world (442,285 domains hosted).
  15. More and more and more... 

These guys are like gmail in web hosting - they talk hundreds gigabytes of space and terabytes of bandwidth.

And for this "oh my freaking God" hosting plan they want $9.95/mo only (or even $7.95 if you subscribe for 2 years). But wait, google for "Dreamhost" and you can find promo codes like "mddr" or "FLY", which give you $97 discount for the first year.

Bottom line - you have to pay only $22.40 for the whole first year.

Cool. I want this. Fuck Windows hosting, go Linux and Ruby :)

Where is the catch, anybody?

Update. Ok, here comes the tricky part. "DreamHost Web Hosting does not accept payments from Israel". Really weird. What's wrong with payments from Israel? Oh well, happily I have US card too.
