Overall Satisfaction with DreamHost

Dreamhost is used for hosting a Drupal based CMS site. The site is a public portal for services and information resources. The hosting service helps provide a solid presence with limited downtime or security problems with its Linux based servers.
  • 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.
  • The service can really be a positive value with its very solid performance and lack of downtime issues found with other services.
  • For those with limited hosting or web development knowledge, the service can be a challenge to fully utilize. Sometimes this may mean additional training.
  • The service also provides a number of expansion opportunities for growing with greater functionalities.
Dreamhost does really well when compared with other hosting services on the market. While its not the easiest nor the cheapest service out there, it offers a powerful set of tools for web developers and offers very good Drupal support. Its unlimited bandwidth plans are also of high value.
Dreamhost is really well suited for different types of web hosting. Its unlimited data bandwidth plans can really help a company with an e-commerce site flourish without fears of limited bandwidth. The service also provides free SSL certificates for added security. It is also great for web developers that want to create a specialized site using coding tools such as Subversion.
