Dave-dave has had multiple hosts over the years and is quiet the bargain shopper.  When he signed up for Dreamhost, he used a $97 off coupon and got a full year hosting contract, paid in full, for only $22.  He was overall impressed with the service provided and feels like he’s found a home for his website. Hopefully he’ll keep his account with Dreamhost and not cancel, then resignup to get the $97 coupon bonus again like some individuals I know…

Price: Excellent! I used a $97 coupon for a year and got a year of hosting for $22, what a steal!
Service: Speeds were excellent! I got 1.72 mbps download average on a 2GB file. Downtime was OKAY. I averaged 99.78% uptime with it being monitored every 1 minute by host-tracker.com. I used 30GB of the storage offered to me without a problem (photo storage and hard drive backup… hehehe) and 200GB of bandwidth without a problem.
Support: Support was very good. Signing up I got near instant replies for sales questions in the earlier evening. I literally received replies minutes after I sent them. Tech Support got back to me within 30 minutes if I marked the priority at the medium equivalent (they go by really weird priority levels such as “PEOPLE ARE DYING!”). Normal Low priority tickets were answered within 3 hours on average. I’d say that support was pretty good for a host with ONLY email support..

mrwebmeister did some research and found out that DreamHost would most likely be a prime candidate for his web hosting needs. He sent out emails to servage, dreamhost, and hostmonster and DreamHost was the quickest so they won his business.

Dreamhost Review

Firstly, i would like to say a big “thank you” to all contributing members of this board. Your insight proved invaluable when selecting a hosting company.

Following the advice posted here, my host quest began by compiling a list of features i deemed important to my needs. This boiled down to: reliability (uptime), storage space, cost, and customer service quality/options. By process of elimination i narrowed the qualifiers down to three: hostmonster, servage, and dreamhost.

He was only getting around 99.1% uptime his first month, but it has been climbing up to 99.9% ever since.
