How to Sign up For a DreamHost Account
Hey, Today’s tutorial is about Dreamhost. In this tutorial, I’m gonna talk about Dreamhost hosting, how you can create an account, how to purchase web hosting plan, how you can connect your existing domain with Dreamhost. So, let’s get started.
Dreamhost is the Award Winning Web & WordPress Hosting Provider Company. They provide different services like website builder, domain name, hosting and servers, dedicated hosting, VPS hosting and much more.
Dreamhost offers 1-year free domain with a purchase of 1-year web hosting. But when you create a free trial account, you have to pay for domain or you can use your existing domain to free sign up for 15 days with Dreamhost [Now, they don’t give trial account access].
So, If you want to try Dreamhost then you should try for the 1-month plan and after using it, if you find it helpful and want to continue then you should upgrade your account.
I’m using Dreamhost and I really like it, they provide 24*7 customer services & best uptime servers at least prices.
How to purchase web hosting on DreamHost?
If you want to try Dreamhost then choose 1-month plan otherwise select 1 or 3-year plan. Please remember, If you purchase more, you will get better value like if you purchase for 1-month then you have to pay $10.95/mo, 1-year plan at $9.95/mo & 3-year plan at $7.95/mo. So, check properly before selecting the plan.
Once you choose the plan, click on sign up!
