DreamHost is another Web Hosting service that has seen some decline in recent years. It once enjoyed a solid reputation for the innovative control panel, good uptime and excellent unlimited service. Although users still like the control panel, uptime is an issue and their customer support is impersonal and slow. This service may still do the job for experienced users who know how to solve problems for themselves, but a beginner may not want to enter the fray without reliable backup.
Although many other services offer a 30-day refund policy, DreamHost offers a 97-day money back guarantee. That gives you enough time to set things up and feel things out before completely committing to a service agreement. If you decide that DreamHost is not for you, just part ways. On the other hand, if you decide to stay, you will already have things set up.
DreamHost offers 50GB of free backup space. They have a strict user agreement license that forbids you from allowing visitors to access your server resources or from streaming copyrighted material. Furthermore, this web hosting service may ask you to pay for a dedicated server if your site becomes unwieldy. What exactly that means is unclear, but they have good reason – if your site causes problems for other users on the server, DreamHost will take action.
