DreamHost Manager is an extension for Joomla 2.5  and 1.5. It was originaly developed for the DreamHost.com API Contest.

It's useful only for people who host their web site on DreamHost's servers. It allows you to manage some features of your account without the need to log in the WebPanel :

  • Announcement ListJoomla + DreamHost = DreamHost Manager
    • See a list of your announcement lists
    • See a list of your subscribers
    • Add or remove subscribers
    • Post an announcement to one or several lists
    • Front end form to allow visitors to subscribe to a list
  • Domain
    • See a list of your domains hosted on DreamHost
    • See your domain registration info
  • User
    • See a list of the users on your DreamHost account
  • MySQL

Now with a Quick Icon plugin for a quick access to DreamHost Manager !

No configuration required. Just install the plugin then go in Extensions -> Plugin manager and enable it. See the last two screenshots below.

This plugin works only with Joomla 2.5.


Built for Joomla



You can see the front end of DreamHost Manager on the mailing list page. For the back end, you'll need to install it on your site. By default it uses the DreamHost's test API key so you can try it even if you don't have a DreamHost account yet.
