"The highest-quality hosting company..."
After reviewing the Top 12 web hosting companies, we chose DreamHost to be our champion host provider.
Hands down, DreamHost offers what we like to label the gold standard in this industry. In fact, this is what web hosting companies should look like, and from what we understand, many companies are trying to copy their offerings.
An impressive investment in server technologies has placed them among the elite web hosting companies in business today. And, for as little as $4.99 a month, you can have access to 50 GB of space and have your free choice of domain names. In addition, you can get up to 250 email addresses. Offerings include unlimited bandwidth, website storage, SSL certificates, and much more.
As with any good web hosting solution, we looked at the reliability of their services. In over eight months of testing dozens and dozens of sites, we never had a problem, even during our highest peak times. We were thoroughly impressed with their reliability in being up and running 100% of the time.
Dream Host pulled strong numbers with value and reliability, but how were they in terms of ease-of-use? After working with Dream Host for only a short time, we figured out their name. They are simply a dream to work with. We were impressed with the intuitive nature of their dashboard and control panel. Without a doubt, the web designers got it right with Dream Host. It was simple to use and had no problems at all uploading our sites and making any necessary changes or additions. We feel that this "ease of use" criterion is essential for those non-technical customers.
Their user interface was simply advanced, clean, and easy to work with. After working with several different companies, Dream Host easily stood out as the best. Whether it's your first time as a website owner or you are a large company looking to upgrade, we know feel confident recommending Dream Host to anyone.
DreamHost solidly remains our first choice among the many web hosting companies we have tried.
Great value, very reliable, and extremely easy to use.
