DreamHost is one of those hosting providers aimed on high quality services rather than cheap prices; that makes it a good choice for hosting websites for that the uptime and the data security is very important. In addition to that, they are offering a wide range of discount coupons, so the first year of hosting can be really cheap.

If you plan to develop many websites, you can choose one of the coupons that gives you up to 6 (six) free domains, so you will save $60/year. This is really huge saving on long term. See the coupons section below and choose the one that is most suitable for you.

One think that you should know before purchasing their service is that they don't have the popular CPanel software. Their control panel is very powerful and useful, but it may be a little confusing for beginners that have only used CPanel before.

However, they are offering an amazing 2 Week Free Trial option, so anyone can try their services for free. And more than that, even after the inital payment thay have the longest money-back guarantee period of 97 days.

Overall excellent hosting at a fine price.

The email servers must occasionally be the home of spammers, leading them to be blacklisted.

DreamHost has a good product at a good price, but what you can't put a price on is the service. Their customer service has been 100% helpful in solving any issue I've had and always give me some background into the problem so I can avoid it in the future. The service has always been fast, friendly and helpful.

My websites have been hosted on Dreamhost since 2013. I must say they are excellent. The support staff are always very helpful and the Dreamhost platform is reliable, efficient and easy to use.

Throughout my dozen years, I've reached out to get help with technical issues as well as billing issues. Each time, the support member I talked to was cordial and helpful. In fact, they've gone above and beyond at least a couple of times. I get the impression that they care about their customers' needs.

The DreamHost Support Team today has again exceeded expectations. During an investigation of an issue with our website they did more than just find the cause of the problem. They dug deeper to help us understand the underlying issue with our app. We greatly appreciate the excellent work of the DreamHost Support Team.

I was very impressed with technical support, especially when it was determined that the problem was with my ISP, they kept tracking the problem with my ISP and let me know when the ISP problem was resolved.

DreamHost is one of two ISPs I use and definitely the better. Their interface is cleaner and the support excellent. I’m more than happy to recommend them.

Dreamhost is great until you try to cancel. Their automated system does not let you cancel and then they try to charge you to close your account. No wonder the prices are so low to start.

Nontheless, they offer good email support if you manage to get a knowledgeable person on the other end. My responses and help were fair enough. Most responses were within a couple of hours after the initial contact. Both problems I had were solved promptly, without blaming Microsoft or Google or Apple, but helping me through. I’m reasonably knowledgeable, so I appreciate the question as to your skill/comfort level at the beginning, which can help sidestep the “reboot your computer” type of answer.

I've been with DreamHost for several years now. I've rarely had a problem and it is usually solved within an hour or less. Their pricing is very affordable. Тhey offer tools which are really easy to build a website with little knowledge.

I highly recommend them.

Recently I committed to 12 months of VPS service from DreamHost so I could service my Private Server for World of Warcraft. I was very pleased with the results, with a high bandwidth allowing myself and friends to enjoy the game together. Their set-up was very simple and I was easily guided through with a technical support staff member.

However, their prices were deceivingly low, with an option to upgrade whenever you had spare cash to increase the RAM or processor. I found that after my first month, I was either pushed towards paying for a whole year or an increased price for following months.

In conclusion, if you are prepared to pay a bit extra for the brilliant support, I would recommend DreamHost. Their services are excellent.
