This is one of the oldest hosting companies in existence. They were established almost 20 years ago by Ralph Dommermuth. They boast a worldwide customer base of 10 million people. They offer several plans that have changed over the years to fit the needs of their consumers.
Located in California, DreamHost was started by a group of college students in 1997 (Miguel Rodriguez, Dallas Kashuba, Sage Weil and Josh Jones). After over 13 years of experience with hosting they chisled out a single shared hosting plan that has everything.
