Great Business
I have been with them since 2008 and very few problems! When there is a problem they work quickly to resolve it and keep your sites up. Wished they were cheaper and that is the only negative thing I have to say about them.

Highly recommended
We've decided to return to Dreamhost after a very bad experience with another webhosting company. I think leaving dreamhost was the worst decision i've ever made; i like their approach and i've always been able to solve my issues in cooperation with their highly trained support team.

Their control panel is very easy to use; everything is explained in detail so every customer, even a beginner, can setup his own website in no-time.

They have high quality servers; to my opinion they dont oversell and the response times are great to. There is almost no downtime and when something gets down it gets solved within a couple of hours.

So my conclusion is: if you are looking for a reliable webhost to start your own website quickly and easily at a fair price; Dreamhost is your place to be!

I've neever seen such terrible customer service!! Cannot get any clue what is going on with my site domain name registration for more than a week. Money are taken but have not heard from their customer service on my requests to explain why my site domain name is still available for public. My advise is do not deal with this company never ever.

Dreamhost is awesome!
I've been a client of Dreamhost for over 4 years now, and I have nothing but compliments to give to their hosting services. I've started with a single blog on a shared host, and since then, I've grown to host multiple sites on both shared servers and virtual private servers, for myself, my company and many different clients. Dreamhost has been able to scale flawlessly to accomodate my growing needs, while keeping my costs under control, and I am confident that it will continue to do so for many years to come. Kudos, Dreamhost!

I have had great experience with Dreamhost and have found their support easy to work with the few times I have had to contact them over the 2 years that I have hosted my websites with them.

Aren't they special. They were okay as long as we had hard coded HTML pages but installing seminal content management systems we rapidly detemined their limits. Sorry to say we didn't get much help, and only got required information from other users in the forum.

Pricing is okay if you don't expect much in return.
Didn't experience any downtimes.
Control panel was quite okay.
Instead of FAQ or knowledge base we found wikis, descriptions there often were of little help.
We didn't really get any (quick) support aside from the user forum.

No recommendation from us. We moved with 6 websites.

Very bad technical support. If you are someone non-technical, NEVER buy into this server.

I am a full time web developer myself and trying to ask for help to alter some settings in php.ini file. I've followed every step in their WIKI documentation, which seems to be very helpful and they are knowing what to do.

But my site gone down, so i submitted a support ticket as a matter of urgency and this is what i've got back:
I'm terribly sorry but we do not provide technical assistance for custom
PHP.ini installations.

What you can do is request for assistance from our fellow Dreamhost
customers, who has gotten this to work. Our forum is located here:

Thanks!

DreamHost would have been the best of cheap webhosting if their servers do not crash and go down so frequently. It's absolutely a nightmare. Their control panel is great, support not bad too, but what do these matter if the server is down for 1/5 of the time?! We need uptime! That's essentially what makes a great web host! But on the contrary, DreamHost is way beyond a bad host in uptime.

Absolutely NOT recommended, even with a small budget you can find better uptime services elsewhere.

A word advice: Keep Away From Dreamhost! The only way to describe Dreamhost's tech support team is that they are incompetent. The company should be renamed as NightmareHost!

Dreamhost is the worst hosting company I have ever dealt with. I'm responsible for number of websites and by mistake I choose Dreamhost for the newest client (askdivine.com)!

They have disabled my website which is only two weeks old, and it is offline for well over 24hrs because of a security threat!

Apparently a phishing page was uploaded to the account. After removing the threat they also have disabled the website, which was absolutely unnecessary!

Their excuse was that the old versions of WordPress, PHPBB, etc. are the common causes for this sort of thing, the irony is that I have never used any of them!

Anyway, I went through the files and told them everything is OK and 10 hrs later came up with a new excuse that our web software itself is the threat and we need to update Joomla. According to [read more...]

I consider Draemhost as one of the worst web hosting companies.

The price wise and the control panel is are ok, but the tech support sucks! The usual response time is between 10 to 12 hrs – and still they have no clues about anything!

I think the company runs by a bunch of school kids since when a problem rises they are running around confused like a headless chickens! I have heard excuses for their incompetency beyond comprehension!

It should be renamed as NightmareHost!

DreamHost is a simple to use, feature rich, and good, basic web hosting company. I am an old Pair.com customer (Pair is probably the best and most secure host around but definitely not cheap and better for more advanced users and needs). Dreamhost on the other hand will give you everything you need and more with a simple price point and usability.

As per some of the "crazy" comments here about them being white supremacists and other bizarre accusations? Believe it if you will but think of the great Onion news story, "Local idiot to post comment on Internet".

Did you ever want to use a hosting company and have it just, work? That's not Dream Host. Dream Host is known as Dream Disgrace. Possibly the worst hosting company on the face of this earth.

Ugh. I was ok with them until I found out that the whole thing is a White Supremacist owned business. It took me a while to figure it out but I did some research and found this:

http://www.thecivicplatform.com/

If you research this site you will see their affiliation with New Dream Network.
New Dream is even collecting money for The Civic Platform here:
http://www.dreamhost.com/donate.cgi?id=8987

If you are ok with supporting neo-nazi's / white supremacists then you've picked the right webhost.

I have only started working with Dream Host recently, the site was referred to me by a friend. So far, I have found their customer service to be very responsive and informative, and I have found the site to be easy to navigate. I am looking forward to adding features and building my site and to continued great customer service.

Where do I start with these people? This was a good deal, until they started having problems with servers going down for days at a time, and NO customer service except by email or wiki. I've been exercising patience with them, until the charged me over $1000 out of nowhere. Then, they suspended my hosting. I've come to despise this company. After four years, I've given them all the second chances they deserve and then some. I am done with dreamhost, and I strongly encourage anyone to think twice before using them!

These people should be called NIGHTMARE host. They have nobody you can
call when there is a problem and I find it to be a HUGE problem when they
start charging me for things they shouldn't charge me for. They made
several erroneous charges and they fixed two of them, but they are
refusing to fix a $190 problem and have my (2) domains held hostage unless
I pay them $260! What!!!??? And again... nobody to talk to.

It's a good thing these are the ones I'm building, not the ones I rely
heavily on every day. I was dangerously close to that I couldn't imagine
if that were the case. They are not worth the risk. There are several
others that have phone number and professional customer services that will
help you. These guys only have email and though they reply, they don't
actually answer any of your questions and concerns. It's totally
frustrating.

My review ABSOLUTELY NEGATIVE!!! STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm using the middle of the line package (one above the base). They are extremely slow to respond to server problem and the server response times are just dreadful. My site has been up and down for the past 3 weeks. But even prior to this their service was sporadic at best. They overload their serves to the point they become unstable; on-top of which, they don't have the technical expertise needed to run in an environment like that. What's worse, is they refuse to move your site to a less loaded server, so it languishes for weeks.

Unless you have a site you don't much care for, I can't recommend this place.

I set up a basic plan for a small local political campaign and things ran a little slowly but basically it was fine. Inside of three weeks things started rolling downhill and it all got real ugly. Here's my take, great price, great feature set. If you get stuck on a troublesome fileserver or cluster BAIL! They have proven to be incapable of handling server problems and will let your site suffer for weeks and weeks before taking action. And once they do take action, be prepared for some serious business-day downtime. Once you start seeing that sort of stuff on your server you better move, and fast.

I have the Monster Code plan. You can't beat the diskspace and bandwidth for the price. DH has had growing pains, but what host doesn't? They have always been very quick with their fixes and keep a blog about what is going on even if it's not flattering for them.

I've never been ignored if I've had to contact customer service or support. Sometimes my sites are a tad slow, but thats shared hosting for you. If I wanted blazing fast sites, I'd loosen up the wallet and pay for dedicated hosting. DH's shared hosting is plenty fast enough. Very happy customer here. Features are great, one click installs of well known web-apps like phpbb/joomla. Custom control panel makes it very easy to administer your sites.

With over 10 years of being on the net, this is by far the best host I've ever had.

Plan - My Crazy Domain Insane - Which is the cheapest plan, but more than enough for my few sites. Has all the bells and whistles. Plus free CVS or Subversion server. A nice feature is the weekly increase in bandwidth and storage space( amount dependent on which plan you choose ) mine grows at 16GB bandwidth a week and disk space grows 1024GB a week. Have been very happy with Dreamhost for almost 3years.

So far I've been with DreamHost for a year and am quite impressed with their customer service and their set of host features. I registered a domain for free, signed up for the L1 plan and saved a bundle with code (DREAMH92). They have a forum and really quirky newsletters they email out periodically. Highly recommend them.

Watchout for dreamhost.com , they'd force you to pick a higher cost web hosting plan if your web traffic increase.
Also, there's NO REFUND especially on renewal, even you cancel on the same day of your renewal like. This is the exact response from dreamhost.com: "we only offer refunds within the first 97 days of service with us. It has been 369 days since you signed up with us, and we can not issue a refund to your card in this case. I apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused. "

Obviously, they want to steal the money. If you were me, stay away, go to lunarpages or something where they would refund your money within 30days even on renewal.

Having just recently registered with this host, I am quite impressed. The webspace, bandwith and additional features offered for the pice are quite outstanding.

First off, tt is advisable to sign up for the site with one of the many available coupons, which allows you to save some serious money on your first bill. Without this, the prices won't be nearly as attractive.

Their basic plan already offers 20 GB of Webspace, a traffic limit of 1000GB, plus lots of neat goodies such as a personal Subversion server, Quicktime Streaming support, free domain registration for a year, unlimited domains and sub-domains, the list goes on. The advanced plans add on top of that. Check out their site for the details.

Overall, I am quite content so far. On the one occasion that I needed it, support feedback has been quick. The panel, while it is not CPanel, is still easy to use and offers all crucial features decently organized.

Dreamhost has been a great value for the money as the deals with the promo codes are hard to beat. Signed up for the L1 account. I got 20GB of storage and 1 TB of traffic for less than $30 a year with a free domain registration. (You need to use Promo code 30AYEAR). You can also choose a monthly option and use promo code NOSET to waive the $49.95 set up fee. Only downside is they do not offer CPanel which I had become very comfortable with, however their conrol panel achieves the same effectiveness.
