DreamHost is an old horse in the Web hosting market and it is having a dream run in the industry. It was founded back in 1996 by few undergraduate students at Claremont College in California. Its stats are humongous. It has over 400000 active users and hosts over 1.5 million websites. the goal of DreamHost is to support the dreams that their customers put online. DreamHost’s vision and mission: They believe in a world where people have the freedom to choose how their digital content is shared, and they foster their customers’ success by providing an open web platform of choice.
97 days money back guarantee. Yes, this is something no other web hosting provider offers. That’s more than three months. This is the longest money back duration in the web hosting industry.
100% Uptime: And they promise 100% uptime or you get one day of extra service free. Well, these are not just special, maybe it’s the one in a million.
SSD: SSD based sites are calculated to be 200% faster than the ones running on HDD.
Custom Dreamhost control panel: DreamHost service doesn’t come with cPanel. DreamHost has its own control panel. This move is very good if you’re a beginner or a non-techy. Because it is very simple to manage your website through the DreamHost control panel. But if you’ve used cPanel for a long time and have got used to it, then you may find DreamHost control panel awkward or unusual to work with.
24/7 Real Tech Support: DreamHost has in-house and U.S. based team of experts to provide pro-level support 24/7, 365. But the twist in the tail is that there is no Phone Support.
Unlimited Disk Space & Bandwidth: There is no limitation put by DreamHost on the size or number of files related to your website. You can use as much as space and bandwidth as you need.
Unlimited Email Addresses: With the unlimited packages, you can create as much as email addresses as you need.
One-Click installer: Install apps like WordPress, Joomla and certificates like Lets Encrypt gave for free in a single click with the One-Click installer.

Being the biggie in the web hosting industry, DreamHost has a lot of reputation. It also offers to stand out features like 100% uptime and 97 days money back guarantee. And now compared to earlier days, the pricing also has come down, because of scattering some plans. It now has reached a wide variety of customers. The lack of cPanel may or may not be an issue.

Been with DreamHost for 8+ years and have no plans to move elsewhere. As a webhost they offer clear up-front pricing that I would regard as good value. I have been able to upgrade and downgrade plans over the years when required with ease. Support does a good job at being prompt and friendly and will tailor the tone of their communication to your level of knowledge. DreamHost does have a friendly and upbeat nature and not the up-selling, commercially-focused tone I have experienced elsewhere.

The dreamhost site was always online. I only needed to contact support a few times, and they always replied very fast -- sometimes by livechat. They have updated their custom control panel -- I think it is fine, I would and do recommend to friends.
