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.

Thank you DreamHost for your responsive and amazing service! Being an amateur in website creation, I feel very welcome with DreamHost. I recently decided that I needed a new domain name for my website and chose DreamHost instead of my previous provider because of how well they treat me as their customer.

After spending too much time trying to choose between many hosting companies, I followed a recommendation for DreamHost. It did not take long to realize I would not feel buyer’s remorse. DreamHost was the right choice. The interface and set up were just what I needed and I feel confident in DreamHost’s service and response. If you are trying to figure out who to trust and which hosting company will work for you, give DreamHost a shot.

The team at DreamHost are tremendous to work with! My support ticket was escalated to the advance team who worked diligently with me to resolve the issue. Which in the end was not a problem with the server but rather a WordPress plugin my client had installed.

I love your support! Their support is amazing, real people - not robots with standard "clear your cookies" messages. The only normal hosting out there for wordpress sites. Sites are super fast, built-in speed optimization, and firewall. It's just perfect.

I've been a customer of this company for six years: they are THE best! The service and support are 5-stars. They have all the features I need that make things simple and effective. Incredible value too! This company has been around for decades [since 1996] and they remain the top hosting company for me.

Outstanding work done by the team to upgrade our joomla website. Project was completed in a timely manner with frequent email updates from the team. A staging site was prepared and available for testing prior to move to live production. A few minor reported issues were fixed. Team also provided me help on how to manage and update the site content. Would definitely recommend Dreamhost professional services.

As always, DreamHost's customer service was rapid, responsive, and top notch. I've been hosting with this company for a number years, and I can say without hesitation they have the best customer service out of quite a few I've worked with.

My site crashed due to a malfunctioning plug-in and I couldn't get access to fix it. I raised a ticket, had a cup of coffee, and when I got back to my PC, I had a response from support about my ticket, AND a functioning website!

I think the quality and thoroughness of their help articles is fantastic, too!

Thanks a million for today, DreamHost!

I started using the hosting services of DreamHost long time ago and was pleasantly surprised at the stability and speed in comparison with other hosts that I used in the past. Based on this experience, I also moved a Joomla website to DreamHost earlier this year and was delighted to witness the increase in speed and stability even on mobile devices. Over the past several years, I have also received excellent customer service from the DreamHost support team.

Dreamhost does take some getting used to as it's not your usual cPanel. However, once you find your way around, the experience is great.

The support team is very knowledgeable, polite and really helpful.

With my previous host, I kept getting Jetpack messages saying my sites were offline - sometimes for hours. I have yet to receive any such messages after moving things over.

Overall very pleased.

Awesome. On all points but especially support. They work with you to fix the problem but also to explain and educate you on what went wrong, why, and how to prevent it from happening again. All without making you feel like a fool.

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.
