Dreamhost 1 year review

by Ruchira on April 18, 2010


Still RuchiraBlog is hosted on Dreamhost’s shared servers. I got it like free 1 year domain registration and 1 year hosting for just $9.99 When they had promotion. So its a freaking deal.
For first impression I thought dreamhost is just FLOP because of this insane price and they must be overselling it.
No I got it wrong. According to domaintools report (whois.domaintols.com) The current server only hosts about 44 domains compared to hostgator they hosts about 400 sites in a server. When checking with SSH server only consumes lower %10 memory usage for running the sites. And I must say servers are very stable and i only got few moments of downtime and dreamhost was kind enough to inform about downtimes on their status blog www.dreamhoststatus.com most of web hosting companies fear to do this because they think it will affect for building up future customer base because they can read it then avoid hosting there if thinks something wrong going on.

After 1 year of hosting in peace I must say Dreamhost is awful I didn’t had to contact their customer support even once for any problem.
Any one who wish to host up with them I definitely recommend to host there.


  • Fast servers
  • Very good uptime
  • SSH access enabled for all accounts
  • Not overselling
  • Nice and unique control panel
  • 100% recommended by Ruchira Sahan


  • Lack of server side stat system like awstats webalizer

For all dreamhost guys who read this blog-

Kudos for you man keep up the great work!!
