posted by delano

I had a difficult time putting to words the excitement I felt when GitHub announced CNAME support. And now, just a few short months later I've finally freed myself from Dreamhost's shackles. I'm now using GitHub for all my hosting needs (including and I must say, it feels pretty good.

Shared hosting has served a useful purpose over the years, but it's days are numbered. Heroku: free. Google App Engine: free. AppJet: free. You can't argue with that. GitHub is not free but CNAME support is included with all paid accounts which I already have. I'm now riding the workflow of the future!
