DreamPress Loves Non-Profits!

Everyone knows DreamHost loves non-profits. We’ve offered free shared hosting for non-profit, charitable organizations registered in the United States, since forever. We love giving back and helping people change the world.

A BumbleBee on a Log - Because we love bees and a green planet!

But for the longest time, non-profits were left out in the cold when it came to DreamPress. When we’d talk to our users at meetups and WordCamps worldwide, we were often asked why we offered no discounts for DreamPress. To be honest, we felt a little sad and decided to knuckle down on this problem.

When You’re Right, You’re Right

We listened and, since we love you guys, we’re putting our money where our mouth is. DreamHost now offers up to 35 percent off on DreamPress to all verified 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. Even the SCA.

That’s right! DreamHost now offers discounts for non-profits to use our managed WordPress hosting. It works out to $12.95 per month if you pay annually, or $14.95 per month if you pay monthly.

We’re talking about real DreamPress here, none of that limited or half-baked stuff. You get full access to our WordPress tuned servers, with stellar caching and no bandwidth limits. Plus you won’t have to leave the awesome support here at DreamHost, ready to solve your WordPress problems at the drop of a hat. We make it easy to upgrade your existing One-Click installs to DreamPress.

The best news is that it works the same way our normal non-profit deals work:

  1. Sign up for our fabulous hosting
  2. Add your domain to DreamPress
  3. Send us proof of your tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3)
  4. Enjoy your discount!

  • As a non-profit, we are BIG FANS of DreamHost. While it’s exciting to see you offering a discount for your DreamPress product, it’s difficult to understand why it’s not a bigger discount? It’s awfully hard to justify giving up free for just 35% off. WOuld it be that big a hit for you to make it half off?

    • DreamPress is expensive, and offers a lot more features than shared does. The current price reflects that, I’m afraid.
