Ad Terras Per Aspera is hosted by Dreamhost, who offer many plans for a wide range of budgets, and all of them are feature rich. I highly recommend Dreamhost. For $50 off any hosting plan with Dreamhost, use the promo code ATPA50 when ordering.
The image I use in the header is a cropped, resized, and rotated version of a photo that was taken by NASA astronauts taken from the International Space Station on June of 2001. The full version of the photo is available.
