DreamHost is a Los Angeles-based web hosting provider and domain name registrar.
Why we like Dreamhost?
We have using Dreamhost since 2013 and we really love Dreamhost for the following reasons:
1. Reliability & Stability – From time to time, any web hosting company will need to upgrade their backend software. When Dreamhost upgrade their platform, they make sure they create backups of all your files so that the transition is smooth, secure and risk-free. Their internal processes to ensure support to their clients is what we love and respect most. We have used some other hosting platform before. Once, we encountered a client’s website being hacked, that hosting company quarantined all our websites in that account and literally destroyed everything we had created. This is not the case with Dreamhost. They provide free “Let’s encrypt” certificates to secure your websites from hacking. It is a very reliable company. The customer support officers are always prompt and effective in helping us solve any network issues.
2. Pricing -Dreamhost offers one of the most competitive price plans. Above all, they provide forever free domain privacy protection for every domain you purchase from them. Therefore, we strongly recommend our clients to buy their domains from Dreamhost.
3. User-friendly Dashboard – Dreamhost dashboard is so easy to use. You can install the WordPress website with just a few clicks, you can easily access and manage your files without having to use FTP, you can assess your databases and create your emails accounts very easily. Everything is super easy!
DreamHost currently has data centers in Ashburn Virginia and Hillsboro Oregon. They do not have datacentres in Asia Pacific region, so if you are located in AsiaPac, you might find your web page loading speed slightly slower than if you host your website with a hosting company with datacentres in AsiaPac regions.
