Dreamhost is another perfectly great hosting company with more than acceptable marks in load time (931ms), uptime (99.72), and customer service response time (under 5 minutes). Like several of our other top recommended web hosting companies, Dreamhost also offers a free domain, free SSL certificate, and offers an impressive 97 day money back guarantee (seriously, who takes that long to decide?).
Also, while other web hosting companies claim to offer you “unlimited bandwidth,” Dreamhost actually delivers on this promise (with a few exceptions, like not using it to host content you don’t own, redirects, or file sharing).
But none of that is why they made our list. Afterall, they’re a little more expensive and slower than some of our other recommendations. What makes Dreamhost different from the rest is that they’re committed to reducing their impact on the earth by way of being a carbon-neutral, LEED Platinum and EnergyStar-certified, do everything possible (including allowing employees to work remotely) kind of company.
Hell, they even have in office composting. That’s commitment!
