DreamHost won PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for web hosting in 2016, marking the third straight year the company has won that distinction (if you want to know more about the award, click here for more details).
What’s more impressive is that the company won in both the general web hosting and small business web hosting categories.
DreamHost is highest rated web hosting by PCMag.com
DreamHost currently hosts more than 1.5 million websites and 750,000 WordPress sites.
Founded in 1996 by four undergraduate students from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, DreamHost started offering hosting services a year later; thus, this year marks DreamHost’s 20th anniversary in the web hosting business.
DreamHost is also an open-source pioneer, having contributed development and engineering resources to the open-source OpenStack project since 2011.
In fact, DreamHost CEO Simon Anderson has sat on the OpenStack Foundation’s Board of Directors since its inception.
DreamHost’s commitment to open-source has also saw it spun off two companies directly involved in open-source projects: the Ceph file system professional services and support company Inktank and the network virtualization project Akanda.
