Vote for apps!

Waaay back in December we made some updates to our One-Click Installer.

You may recall that we now accept submissions for apps to be added to the Installer, meaning that app developers the world over now have a channel for getting wider distribution of their efforts!

We set in motion a Call for Apps contest in December and the response was great.

The entry period for that contest has now ended, we’ve filtered through the entries, and those that have passed our own internal review are now available on our web panel for our many thousands of customers to install and use!

If you’re a DreamHost customer please try them out and then VOTE on your favorites! Just visit the One-Click Installer on your web panel, click the “App Contest” category to see the entries, select an app and look for this little gem to cast your vote:
