DreamHost Survey Reveals a Horde of Web Professionals

  • DreamHost Survey Reveals a Horde of Web Professionals

    Trumpets programs and features aimed at developers and web entrepreneurs

    LOS ANGELES, California—October 11th, 2013—DreamHost®, a global leader in web hosting and cloud storage and computing services, today felt the need to express its love and respect – in no uncertain terms – for web professionals the world over.

    “Web developers and entrepreneurs make the world go ‘round,” said VP of Marketing Brett Dunst, “and their success is our success. We’re constantly amazed by the creativity, talent, and ambition that our customers throw up – sometimes involuntarily – all over the internet every day.”

    In a recent customer survey, over 55,000 of DreamHost’s 375,000 customers self-identified themselves as web designers or developers – the valiant creators of blogs, websites and next gen mobile and web apps for customers around the world. Over 50% of DreamHost customers also described themselves as “very experienced” with web development and web hosting.

    This all makes sense, given DreamHost’s long-term commitment to providing the leading platform for web professionals to create, share and prosper on the Internet – and have fun while doing it.

    DreamHost’s passion for supporting open source software development also runs deep. Its own internal software development team is actively encouraged to seek out open-source solutions and commit code back to open-source software projects. DreamHost’s contributions to WordPress, Ceph storage software, and the OpenStack cloud platform are numerous and bountiful – a testament to the allure and promise of open source as the best basis for developing major platforms with shared effort and for community benefit.

    DreamHost was created in 1997 by and for web designers and developers. Coded primarily in Perl, DreamHost’s robust and flexible hosting platform caters to the needs of web developers worldwide. Developers can run any number of websites, blogs or apps under a single Shared, VPS or Dedicated hosting account, and easily migrate sites and apps from Shared to VPS to Dedicated with just one click. The company’s next gen public cloud storage and computing services, DreamObjects and DreamCompute, deliver a complete development, testing and production environment for web apps at any point in their life cycle.

    One-click software installations empower busy entrepreneurs with quick and easy access to powerful open-source tools like MediaWiki, WordPress, Zen Cart, and more.

    Finally, for those whose businesses revolve around generating more business for others, DreamHost offers an affiliate program with truly ludicrous payment terms – paying out a fair amount more than industry standards and common sense would dictate for the referral of new hosting customers.

    “As entrepreneurs, we are all designers and developers to some degree, and serving the “makers” of the web has been our mission since the early days of the Internet,” said DreamHost CEO Simon Anderson. “We’re stoked to find out that so many designers and developers use our services every day, and we’ll be cranking out more services and love for these talented and brave adventurers – as they themselves grow!”
