Common Questions About DreamHost

What’s the difference between DreamHost and your competition?

Since 1997 we’ve advocated that quality web hosting doesn’t have to be expensive, that customers are not expendable, and that our industry leading, in-house platform powers our customers’ success. Combined with the friendly energy of our Technical Support team, we believe we’re the best place on the planet to host your website and grow your online presence.

It’s no wonder CNET ranks us 5 out 5 and we’re PC Magazine’s top-rated web host for 5 years running.

I have a domain name at a different company. Can I transfer it to DreamHost?

Yes, DreamHost specializes not just in web hosting but also domains. You can transfer your current domain to DreamHost and also take advantage of our WHOIS Privacy that’s included free.

I’m a pro. Can I manage all my domains in my DreamHost account?

Yes. Your DreamHost control panel features total DNS management that’s so good you’d think domains were the only thing we did. Set up email forwarding, configure MX records - enjoy total domain management power.

Common Questions About Shared Hosting

I’m a pro-level developer and designer. Is DreamHost Shared Hosting the right platform me?

Yes, absolutely. Our goal at DreamHost is to be the webmaster’s web host. From SSH access to the ability to easily host multiple websites with sub-account logins, our control panel is custom built to cater to developers and web designers. (But we’re still simple enough even if you aren’t.) Many of our developer/designer customers start with Shared hosting and when they’re ready for more power upgrade to our VPS hosting.

Try us out for for 97 days (over 3 months) and if you don’t like us, get your money back no questions asked.

Does web hosting include a website builder?

Yes. DreamHost web hosting includes Remixer, our modern website builder that makes publishing a beautiful website simple. For more advanced sites, we recommend using our custom integrated WordPress, the world’s most popular and advanced website builder. From simple sites to complex, WordPress creates modern, responsive websites designed to grow with your ambition. (And all-new, with Remixer you can now export your site to WordPress when you’re ready to grow!)

Does Shared web hosting include Email?

Our “Unlimited” plan includes unlimited email accounts. In fact, some of our customers purchase web hosting just for custom email at their unique domain name. Sending from an email like “” makes a much more powerful branding impression than a generic Gmail address. DreamHost web hosting includes an unlimited number of email accounts and forwarders, so you can easily and immediately send from a pro-level email address.

How many websites can I host?

With our “Unlimited” plan, you can host an unlimited number of websites and domain names in one account. Plus, if you’re a web designer or developer it’s easy to set up sub-logins you control for client sites, collaborators, or friends.

What’s the difference between a domain name and web hosting?

A domain name is your unique web address. Web hosting is the files and tools used to build your site. For example, you could register the domain name “” and then use DreamHost web hosting to build the site yourself or use one of the website builder tools available in our control panel like WordPress or our click-to-edit website builder, Remixer.

Does Shared web hosting come with a free domain name?

Our “Unlimited” annual and longer web hosting plans include a free 1 year domain registration (.COM, .NET, .ORG, .CLUB, or .INFO). Your domain registration also includes a free private registration (WHOIS Domain Privacy).

Do you include free SSL certificates?

Yes. Every web hosting plan includes unlimited free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates, so when visitors access your site instead of seeing a warning message they’ll see that your site’s secure. Also, the installation process is so easy even a chipmunk could do it. Unlike the old days, installing your SSL certificate is as easy as selecting a radio button. Even better, since Google values secure sites for SEO, you’ll have instant improved SEO ranking power (aka built-in marketing on day one) with your secure site.
