Dreamhost promo code and review

It has been more than 10 years now I’m in internet business and I’ve tried at least 50 different web hosting providers, shared, VPS and even dedicated servers.

The freedom and access you have on VPS (Virtual Private Server) and specially dedicated server is great and leaves you with almost no limit on what you want to do with your site, except some policies about some kind of websites, but most of the time the amount you pay might be more than what you really need for your site(s).

It’s always a good idea to check web host provider’s reviews and what other people say about them but it doesn’t always work that well because big hosting providers usually have hundreds of servers in different datacenters and networks, so someone’s experience might not be same as the others.

One of the best thing you should consider is the Money-back guarantee they provide so you can try the service by yourself without risk of being ripped off which is a great advantage.

About Dreamhost, as usual I searched for people reviews and found a lot of totally opposite reviews and opinions, some people believed Dreamhost SUCKS while some others say it ROCKS :D so that was when 97 days money-back guarantee they offer, helped me try it by myself and see how it works for me, while I still kept my backup plans somewhere else.

It has been more than a year I’m with Dreamhost and I should say except 2 times I’ve never had any major problems with them and their customer support. They really need a better ticketing system but that’s not an issue while you can always contact them or reply to them by email.

They don’t have Fantastico and Cpanel which made me kinda nervous at the beginning but after 2-3 days I found their control panel handy enough not to need any other tool. Their one-click installs have all scripts I needed from Fantastico and totally automated. The best thing about their Fantastico alternative is that it’s usually up-to-dated with the last version of the scripts to be installed OR to automatically upgrade your previously installed scripts.

One of the best things about them is their custom promo code generator which lets you make your own promo code and give others up to $50 discount.

I’ve created one with max. discount allowed so if you plan to sign up for their service, you can use the promo code “Scriptbloggers” without double-quotes and get $50 off your bill.

Anyway you can still enjoy using 97 days of money-back guarantee and request for a full refund if you didn’t like it.

Hope you like it!
