DreamHost recently announced free SSL certificates through their domain hosting using Let’s Encrypt. Until today, my site was not on a secure connection (SSL). Even though I had intended to get my site on a secure connection, I just never got around to it until now.
Enabling OPcache can improve your site’s performance by decreasing the php execution process when a script is requested. DreamHost permits a user to log into the server through secure shell with user level permissions.
