“I am severely disappointed in Dreamhost”
Reviewed

Let the record show that I've been with Dreamhost for 13 years. Their recent shift to be totally dependent upon the panel interface has screwed me over. For some reason, I am locked out of my account and I can't reset my password. Even worst, the "Contact Us" form will not accept any input...even as a new customer! So there Show more

“Exceeded my expectations - Great host!”
Reviewed

I checked out many online reviews for lots of web hosts before I decided to go with DreamHost. Didn't regret my decision for one second. They've even exceeded my expectations. Support is very helpful and they've got a friendly attitude. Using the service itself is easy and what's most important for me - it's very affordable.

“Happy with their hosting”
Reviewed

DreamHost has been the first host I used since I started out a few years ago, and even if I don't have any other to compare it to, I can say I'm very happy with the service they provide. The support team is always happy to help when you need them, and I haven't had any major issues so far. Show more

“Excellent experience all around!”
Reviewed

I've been hosting with them since 2013 - when something seems off with the site, it only takes one quick Tweet and within an hour I have a resolution. I don't even have to pick up the phone!

“Great service in general, but I'm having some login issues at the moment”
Reviewed

I've been with DreamHost for almost 3 years and I've got a few hosting plans with them, all of which work just great most of the time. I somehow got locked out of one of my accounts and I can't log in. I can't even reset my password (though I'm sure I'm entering the correct one when I try to Show more

“Very good”
Reviewed

I've been hosting with Dream Host for the last 5 years and had a very good experience. They have a great support team, always ready to help, definitely one of the better ones I've been in contact with. I've used both cheaper and more expensive hosting services, but I don't think any of them could compare to Dream Host! It Show more

“Proud to be a DreamHost user!”
Reviewed

I just love DreamHost, especially after their recent issue with the Department of Justice. They're doing the right thing protecting the privacy of the over a million users who visited the infamous website, by not giving away all those IP addresses.
I've had an awesome service by them for the last 5 years, I got used to the cpanel which is Show more

“A decent webhosting provider, but it can always be better”
Reviewed

Though I'm fairly satisfied with Dream Host's work so far (been a user for almost 4 years), there are some downsides to them. Apart from all the things they're great in, they could work a bit more on their support's speed. I've been in situations where I've waited for DAYS for a resolution of various (small) issues. Doesn't happen often, Show more
