Shared Hosting

For a small budget and a small website, shared hosting provides two plans. One can go monthly, yearly or save more for 3 years plan. The monthly plan will cost you more than one year and the three-year plan.

For a year hosting plan, the cost is $3.59/m which gives one website to host. A free domain name, free SSL and unlimited traffic. Here the plan cost you for the email if you want it. But free privacy may attract you if you are a small website owner.

Dreamhost supporting open-source and here working with WordPress. So, the website builder is very easy for a WordPress site. Also, it is pre-installed so you have not to go look for it.

People who are looking to migrate their well-established WordPress site, Dreamhost has pro-migration service. For $99 migration will be done with any shared hosting without downtime within 48 hours.

VPS Hosting

Big or small or application VPS plans start from $10/m. For a large traffic website, the VPS plan is the best. More server power for the site than shared hosting plans.

The same period based plans apply here too. You have to pay high for a monthly plan. To save money, one should purchase their yearly plans.

For a month cost is $15/m the same for a year will cost $13.75/m and three year period it costs $10/m.

The basic plan gives 1GB RAM, 30GB SSD storage and unlimited website hosting. Unlimited traffic and free SSL. Well, mostly all the plans are the same only the data space and RAM differ.

Dedicated Hosting

Your very own server for ultimate performance. To leverage all the system resources you should take into dedicated web hosting. Here your website lives on the serve by itself.

The plan, here again, depends on the period you choose. One month’s plan will cost you more than a year, which is $149/m.

Intel Xeon 4-Core 8-Thread, 4 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD, RAID 1 Storage, Root Access, Local MySQL Database Server, Ubuntu, 100% Network Uptime Guarantee, 24×7 Tech Support & Server Monitoring, DDoS Protection. No Window-based dedicated servers, Dreamhost has Linux hosting.

Cloud Hosting

Increase the server needs when it is needed with cloud hosting. Dreamhost provides cloud hosting which gives 100GB of block storage and free bandwidth to all accounts.

The package starts at $4.50/m for 512MB RAM, 100GB storage and unlimited monthly data transfer.

Prices in short

Shared Hosting – $4.95/m ($3.95/m for a year), ($2.59/m for three years), VPS – $15/m ($13.75/m for a year), ($10/m for three years) , Managed WordPress – $16.95/m, Dedicated Server – $149/m, Cloud Hosting – $4.50/m

Not to be confused about their plans listed here or on their website. They have three different ideas/periods of plans which save more by choosing the long term period.

Costs are monthly and effects on prices you pay per month.
