Yet Another Reason I love Dreamhost

So, I already wrote about why I like my website host so much but then today I got another reason to love them.

I have owned several domains over the years. One trick about domains is that you register and update the domain either every 1 year or 2 years or some other amount, and you use different registrars and you, well, forget your login information for that one registrar from 6 years ago and you no longer have access to the stupid college email address you used to register there and, and to protect you they don't just let any geek off the street change the email address, you have to fax in a signed form with a photocopy of your driver's license because signed forms with photocopies of your drivers license are impossible to fake and that fax proves who you are, and then they just ignore that fax so a few months later you call and they tell you the process again and you send it again and they ignore it again. Fun process, right?

Today, I got an email from Dreamhost about the domain that I have registered with them. Just a friendly reminder that I need to keep the contact information current to prevent situations like the one I describe above. And for that, I love them.
