DreamHost is the perfect balance of price vs. performance - and an A+ for the outstanding support team!

Pros and Cons

  • Customer service is industry-best. We've never had a problem that wasn't solved by them almost immediately.
  • Their dashboard is extremely easy to use and doesn't cause any confusion at all.
  • Their website speeds are good but not great. In an age when speed is important, they are good enough, especially for the price.
  • They have a great backup feature.
  • We've had issues in the past with compatibility migrating websites over (from Bluehost specifically).
  • We've had issues of WordPress updates crashing our server, but a quick call to support fixes everything immediately.
  • Their pricing structure and different packages are a bit confusing to choose from.

Pros and Cons

  • Dreamhost has very good hosting plans that can be matched for different levels of hosting needs and expected web traffic bandwidth.
  • The hosting service is very friendly for coders and those needing to tinker "under the hood" with their sites.
  • Great uptime service with limited technical issues.
  • Dreamhost may not be the best solution for users with limited web hosting knowledge.
  • The service doesn't offer great technical support and lacks customer support by phone.
  • The service may not be the cheapest among hosting providers.

DreamHost Above the Competition

Pros and Cons

  • Dreamhost provides great support. Every question I have asked I have heard back from them within 24 hours.
  • Dreamhost sends you updates via email as your hosting and domain expiration get close. They assure that you are aware that you need to update your hosting and domain.
  • Dreamhost has an easy to use interface that assures it is simple to navigate for simple management of content and websites.
  • I would like to see MOODLE re-installed as a plug-in. Most educators use MOODLE so this plug in is important.

DreamHost Will Help You Sleep Better At Night

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • DreamHost lets you manage everything in one place--hosting, databases, domain names, email forwarders and inboxes, etc. This can make it much easier to keep track of all the important aspects of your web presence.
  • DreamHost's one-click installs of many popular web products, including WordPress, makes it very easy to start a new website.
  • DreamHost has very responsive support, which makes solving many problems much easier.
  • There was one instance where DreamHost support caused unnecessary downtime because they misread my request. Unfortunately I don't have access to that account anymore (it was an old employer) so I don't remember the details. To avoid this, make it very clear whether you're just asking a question or want support to handle it (they can be quite eager to fix the problem even when you've just asked a question), and be VERY clear what you need when doing the wrong thing may cause serious problems.

One-click installers are really nice and easy to use

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • One click installers work really well.
  • When I needed support it was really effective.
  • As a new customer, it was really easy and fast to get what I wanted (WordPress in a shared hosting).
  • If you want to deploy something that needs more tuning and is not a one-click installer it will take some time.
  • As any shared hosting, the libraries will be outdated because they can't update it without breaking many things.
  • Sometimes my blog was unavailable for some time without reason. Probably problems with bad neighbors.
