DreamHost Brings Solid State Drives to Shared Hosting

Speed Increases, Sends Hearts Aflutter

LOS ANGELES, CA—March 4, 2015—DreamHost®, a global leader in web hosting and cloud services for entrepreneurs and developers, today announced the immediate availability of Solid State Drives (SSDs) on its shared web hosting accounts.

After adding SSDs to its Virtual Private Servers just four months ago and seeing both speed gains of up to 200% and insanely favorable feedback from users, the next steps were clear.

“We want our customers’ websites to be successful,” said Kathy Brahm, DreamHost’s VP of Shared Hosting. “Accelerating their sites’ performance with SSDs was the quickest, best way to do that.”

WordPress users in particular demand peak performance from their hosting, and the shared hosting speed boost that SSDs provide should be particularly noticeable to anyone who uses WordPress regularly.

Unlimited website storage and bandwidth remain standard features of shared hosting at DreamHost, even with these new solid state drives, and prices will remain the same at just $8.95 per month.

Finding ways to boost its users’ website performance is a worthy pursuit, and DreamHost continues to eagerly update its hosting platform to do exactly that.
