Brea, California – March 6, 2023 – DreamHost has been presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Sales & Customer Service category in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The Stevie Awards organizes eight of the world’s leading business awards programs, also including the prestigious American Business Awards® and International Business Awards®.
Winners were announced during a gala event attended by more than 400 professionals from around the world at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, March 3.
More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry, in 49 nations and territories, were considered in this year’s competition. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 170 professionals worldwide on seven specialized judging committees. Entries were considered in more than 90 categories for customer service and contact center achievements.

The number of customers served in under one hour via email has increased by 16%, resulting in a total of over 70% of DreamHost’s customers receiving help through email within one hour.
