We have just one great Dreamhost offer for you this October. Currently, you can get significant savings (currently 40% off) on their Shared Hosting plans, and with their amazing 97-day money back guarantee you will have plenty of time to get a full “no questions asked” refund if you find their service is not for you.
While we think their service is a little expensive without the Promo Code, they are worth considering as a hosting provider, especially if you go for their specialist WordPress Hosting. You can find out more about them via Expert and User Reviews.
New Dreamhost Promo Codes for October 2016
We have one great offer this month:
- $40%off Hosting Discount Code – This gives you a one off $50 off your first invoice, meaning you can get 12 months hosting from just $5.78 per month.
You can find the latest Coupons below. When you click on it will open a new browser window and copy the Discount code to your clipboard. Note that the coupon link takes you to a special offer page.
How to sign up with one of our great offers
We have created some detailed step by step instructions to help you through the process of signing up with our Coupon Code. As you will see above, there is just one coupon available.
1. Click your chosen Dreamhost Promo code
This is simply a massive discount off your first year of hosting. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else.
2. Click the “Start Now” button at the top of the page
While they use coupon codes, they are implemented automatically. For instance, once you click your chosen offer coupon above you will be taken to their website, and there will be a blue bar at the top of the site highlighting the Coupon you just clicked, along with the monthly price that it would give. To take advantage of the offer just select the “Start Now” button as shown below:
This will take you to the configuration screen where you can create your account, configure domain, decide on which billing plan you want to use (i.e. monthly, yearly) and then arrange for payment.
3. Create your Account
When signing up for hosting the first thing you need to do is create your account by entering your email address and choosing a secure password. The password needs to contain both letters and numbers. You will see a green tick and the word “good” to indicate that your password is acceptable.
Once you have entered your chosen email and password click “continue”.
4. Configure a Domain
The next stage is to enter your domain information. We recommend you only purchase hosting with Dreamhost and use Namecheap (see our Namecheap Review) to buy domains. However, there are options here to register a new domain or transfer a domain from your existing registrar. You can always transfer it away at a later date if you choose, or just keep it there if you want to make life easy and purchase a domain with them, though. The choice is yours.
Once you have decided on how to configure your domain, click “continue”.
4. Choose a Payment Plan
You should select the yearly billing cycle as you will see that the $65 discount has been applied. The renewal rates are shown in small print underneath, so be sure to read that so as to avoid any surprise at the end of the initial billing period.
5. Set Up Payment
Arrange payment for your services. In our experience, you will get an immediate email confirming the purchase, along with immediate setup of your services.
Dreamhost Coupon & Billing FAQ’s
Can you advise which hosting plan I should choose?
They offer two different types of hosting; standard shared hosting and Managed WordPress Hosting. Both come with SSD Storage and have many different options.
The shared hosting comes with many features such as SSD Storage, but if you want additional performance related features, and better WordPress security then you may wish to consider the Managed Hosting. Please note that the interface with their Managed Hosting is much more restrictive (i.e. no cPanel), so it is not suitable for everyone. We would recommend trying it out.
Their Managed hosting has the option of using PHP 5.5 with Opcache (we imagine PHP 7 will be made available soon), HHVM, Varnish Caching and Memcached.
Can I pay monthly?
Yes, they offer the ability to pay monthly, but it costs $10,95 pm, instead of $8,95 pm when you pay for two years in advance.
What other billing cycles do they offer?
They offer monthly, yearly and two-yearly plans. The best value plan is their two-yearly plans, but there are some savings for paying annually.
Do Dreamhost offer a Free domain?
Yes, they do offer a free domain. However, we negotiated our special discount on the basis that no free domain was available. We had the option to choose between a lower discount, and free domain, or a higher discount and no domain. With many of our readers already owning a domain we chose the larger discount.
What types of payment can I use to pay?
- Credit/Debit Card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Diners Club)
- Checking Account
- Check or Money Order
- Gift Certificate
If you are purchasing any items that require payment up front, such as domain registrations, SSL certificates, etc. then the payment must be made via credit card. You can also use Paypal, but you must make a pre-payment to your account first.
Does Dreamhost accept Paypal?
Yes, they do accept Paypal.
Does Dreamhost accept Bitcoin?
They do not accept Bitcoin at this time. If paying by Bitcoin is essential, then we suggest Namecheap.
Is there a money back guarantee? If so how long?
They have one of the longest money back guarantees, but you should be aware of the following:
- The money backguaranteeonly applies to credit card payments
- It only applies to their shared hosting plans (not managed WordPress Hosting)
Will my price go up when my hosting plan renews?
Yes, the cost of hosting will go up once you renew as the initial discount offered by our Coupons only applies to the first invoice. You will need to sign up for at least one year to take advantage of our discount code.
Are there any hidden or setup fees?
No, the amount payable is clearly shown when you sign up for your account. There are no additional fees added to your account.
What Currency do they use?
All payments of services are made in the USD currency. Therefore, your credit card \ bank will set the exchange rate when making payment.
Do you have a separate billing department?
No, all of their support acts as one unified team. You should submit a support ticket to discuss billing issues.
Does Dreamhost offer discounts for charitable organizations?
Yes, they do. However, we would still recommend using our own promotional code, and contacting them about the Charitable Discount before renewal. You cannot use our discount at the same time as any charitable discount.
