Dreamhost Dedicated Hosting Review

Dreamhost has just announced the return of dedicated hosting in April 2011. If you have wanted something more than VPS or shared hosting and like the Dreamhost Interface then Dreamhost dedicated hosting could be a good choice.

Here is what they had to say in their newsletter:

Traditional web hosting is a great solution for most people, but it does require you to share the resources of a single machine with many other customers.

You also share hardware with a VPS hosting package, but VPS lets you carve out a specific chunk of guaranteed server resources and pay for only what you use.

Dedicated hosting is for the true power user. One customer. One machine. One price. There’s no fiddling with resource sliders, no worrying about other customers abusing your server…none of that! It’s all you, all the time.

Our entry-level dedicated server includes a dual core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 500GB of disk space, all for just $89 per month.

They must have just ran out of the $89 a month deal because we are seeing a bit higher prices here when we look. Nonetheless for dedicated hosting the prices seem pretty good.  This includes Automatic backups apparently which would be very important if you value your websites.

We have yet to test it out but it looks pretty good in theory.

Here are some of the selling points

  • Automatic managed backups of your entire site  – Unlimited Space
  • Unmetered data transfer bandwidth
  • Full root access and remote reboot from the Web Panel
  • 4-hour hardware replacement guarantee policy ( Sounds good in theory)
  • Three callbacks per month
  • Own and operate our own secure datacenter  – They guarantee 100% uptime – while not one can do this 100% in reality – they do refund you or credit your for downtime and it is especially nice that they own and are in control of the datacenter.
