Great service for novice webmaster, just what our small NFP veterans' association needed.

WordPress migrated our small, low-traffic WordPress site from another host without problems. Support has been prompt and patient with an old retired Marine dragooned into serving as Webmaster. Price is right, too, since our o... More nly revenue source is donations from members. Less
Great Technical Support!

Kinsta has provided me with a reliable and FAST hosting platform over the past year. Very infrequently a problem does crop up (usually WordPress related!) and when it does Kinsta provides excellent technical support in a tim... More ely manner. The technicians are patient and informative, and make every effort to solve the problem at hand. I would recommend Kinsta if you are looking for a managed WordPress hosting service. Less

Run fast

Been with them 3-4 days because of their "100% uptime". Their entire network has been constantly down for almost TWO DAYS. My uptime monitor reports total completely down over the last 2 days of almost FOUR hours. Including... More for an HOUR last night. Dreamhost is completely unsympathetic that my business is losing money, and has been sending out "gee we're sorry. It will probably be fixed soon" emails.
I've been in many hosters, and Dreamhost is the worst by far. I now have to find another hoster, and move my site AGAIN because their service has been pathetic and unreliable. Run as fast and as far as you can from Dreamhost. A completely unreliable and dysfunctional provider.
ADDED: It's now the THIRD day my website is going down. A hoster with unresolved DNS problems taking down my site. This is the most unreliable service I've ever been 9n, and all I've gotten from Dreamhost is "our techs are working on it. Meanwhile, I lose money and clients, and they dont seem to care at all.
