Really, we are!
From our simple days as a startup company in 1997, DreamHost knows what it means to be an engineering-focused web startup. Today we focus on software developers and web entrepreneurs, providing tools and programs to help you get your ideas – whatever they may be – out of your head and onto the web.
- DreamHost’s commitment to open-source software means you’ll be able to install the apps that *you* want on our Linux hosting platform
- Shell (command line) access comes standard on all accounts. You shouldn’t have to “opt-in” to request it, and we don’t want to get in the way of you creating great things!
- We support as many programming languages as you do! Perl, Python, PHP, Ruby – you name it, and we’re here to support it!
- DreamObjects cloud storage and DreamCompute elastic computing resources provide the flexible infrastructure you’ll need to support your web apps from one user to one million – and beyond!
- Build your site and host it in minutes! Install popular open-source software like WordPress with just one click – we’ll install it and keep it up to date for you. You’re building an empire – let us help!
- Start small and build up! Our unified hosting platform means you can start with relatively inexpensive shared hosting and easily migrate to a virtual private server, dedicated hosting, or cloud computing and object storage as your needs grow!
- Become an active affiliate of DreamHost to reduce, defray, or invert your hosting costs altogether! Spread the word to your startup pals – we were there once ourselves!
