For just under $8 a month, I get 20 gigs of storage space, a terabyte of bandwidth allowance per month – more than ample for my needs well into the future – and hosting multiple domains. Plus quite a few bells and whistles as part of the overall package.
Since then, I’ve had nothing but excellent service. The few times I’ve needed to submit a support request, I’ve had timely and helpful responses.
A few months ago, DreamHost started a new status notification system as a blog called, logically, DreamHost Status. I have the blog’s RSS feeds in my RSS reader enabling me to easily keep up with things going on that might affect my service. Not only that, I can just generally keep in touch with what’s happening overall at DreamHost. And they post regularly and in some detail, so I have the feeling that they’re on top of all things at all times. That’s comforting.
Then there’s the Official DreamHost Weblog which consistently has news and commentary about, well, anything and everthing (especially check out Josh Jones’ posts: usually hilarious). This helps me feel closer in touch with them even if I rarely engage in conversation on the blog. I lurk, I read, I’m in touch.
Why am I posting about this? Well, nothing more than expressing a feeling of satisfaction with this company, a feeling that I made a very good choice in signing up with them.
And this recommendation comes openly, no hidden code in the link above that gives me any referrer credit. So go ahead, click away!
