My blog on shared hosting

The idea of moving my blog from my own dedicated server to humble shared hosting account was really scary for me, I was afraid that a shared hosting account wont handle the daily traffic I'm receiving but I'm really happy with the fantastic hosting provided by DreamHost.

DreamHost isn't just a name, dream host is damn reliable hosting service provider, I've never thought I'd be happy with a service provider like I'm now,
I don't remember any downtime since I started with them in August 2006 and because I was afraid of shared hosting reliability I kept my dedicated server running for a month just to move quickly in case I got in trouble with DreamHost, I'm also monitoring my blog uptime with three monitoring service provider and so far I had 0 seconds downtime! YES 0 second.

Maybe you wonder how much this reliable shared hosting account would cost, well at that time I hunted a special offer so I paid only $22 for one year which include 20GB of storage and 500GB of monthly bandwidth.

Few days ago DreamHost celebrated their 9th anniversary and unlike any anniversary you ever heard of they did amaze me, They increase my disk storage to 200GB Ok, let me spell it for you TWO HUNDRED GB! and same applies to my monthly bandwidth.

I can't say they are error free hosting provider as this will never happen but they are LIE free hosting provider, what they do is a good definition of transparency, they post system wide status and server specific status whenever it happen so you know where you stand and they never put you in dark room.

What so fascinating about them is their hosting environment which is the best environment I have ever used, you will have almost all tools you may think of pre-installed plus the luxury in ability to install what you need.

You can install your own PHP version or your own my server server or whatever you want.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
