Being in the service from 1997, DreamHost is one of the oldest hosting service providers available right now. The award-winning hosting service caters to more than 1.5 million blogs, websites, and apps. They offer shared, dedicated, VPS, cloud, and managed hosting packages.

Unlike most other hosting services, DreamHost doesn’t use cPanel. Instead, it offers a fully custom interface for the users. Once you get used to the interface, it is very simple to use. The hosting provider uses several security measures including multi-factor authentication, free SSL, and auto sFTP.

The shared hosting plan is priced at $10.95 per month, or $9.95/month for 1-year, or $7.95/month for 3-year contracts. This plan includes unlimited domains, storage, bandwidth, email accounts, etc. You will also get a domain with privacy protection for the first year.

Among all other hosting solutions I’ve used in past, DreamHost is my best and it’s going to stay that way. They have achieved an excellence in terms of user experience, simplicity, and delivering what’s promised. Signing up and getting started is dead simple, and their Dashboard area is not only simple but elegant. There is no list of tools which are made available just for the sake of it. Everything useful is part of the Dashboard and everything not-useful is simply not available. Their servers are uptime throughout the year and they are always informing about the maintenance downtime. In past, they have won many awards for delivering top-notch service and for being this simple and elegant. Also, they have been operating in the industry for more than 20 years.
