Home / Use Circle CI with Dreamhost

Automate your deployment to Dreamhost

Cheap hosts like Dreamhost, Bluehost and others offer lots of nice feature for a small price. Typically, you get to spin up a wordpress site with a 'one click install' and get other features liek a shared MySQL database.

With tools like Netlify and Now.sh deployment has never been easier. But, what if you want the same autodeployment features you get with these cool new services but on your own cheap host?
