DreamHost Announcements

Doin’ the shuffle

In the hosting industry customers do switch hosts from time to time.

It happens.

"It happens"

Customers leave DreamHost and old customers come back to DreamHost. Every day.

It happens to us, and it happens to other hosts.

It’s an endless cycle of creation, destruction, and rebirth.

It's the endless cycle of which we are all a part...

It keeps things interesting and it keeps us on our toes.

There are many reasons for customer churn. Pricing, features, service levels, and positions on hot political issues are just some of the many criteria that a discriminating hosting customer might look for when selecting a home for their website.

“SOPA” has been in the news a lot lately. It’s a piece of legislation that threatens the very nature of the Internet. DreamHost opposes SOPA. Many web hosts do. But not all.

The Save Hosting Coalition explains why SOPA is bad for web hosts. And americancensorship.org explains what’s wrong with SOPA in a great infographic.

If your host has rubbed you the wrong way about SOPA or any other issue, allow us to lather you up with this special offer…


It’s a great way to get yourself up and out of a bad hosting situation, and in to the loving arms of DreamHost – lovers of open-source software, WordPress, free speech, freedom on the Internet, puppies, kittens, and candy.
