*From JoyceD 4/27/2008 - I was having good experience with it, but recently the tech support has been atrocious and my church site was hacked several times. I recommend that you find a service with an 800 number so you can speak directly with your tech support.  I would not recommend this service! Though I do still have a couple of sites using it as they have minimal service & have not experienced any problems.

*From JoyceD 11/7/2007 - I have log-in capability on a site that uses it, but I haven't dealt with them directly. I see a lot of people think they're great, but I compared software versions and they're not up-to-date on everything. I believe it's their customer service that gets them top ratings, which includes 24X7 toll free phone support. I have also read some reviews from unsatisfied customers, though.

+
'''Reviews'''
+
 
+
*From Stonewall Ballard 2007/11/09 - First Parish in Concord has used DreamHost since June of 2005. I chose it because it was cheap and offered enough space for our photo gallery. Web and database services tends to be slow. Outages are not uncommon. Outgoing email is frequently blacklisted by Comcast, Verizon, and AOL. OTOH, it's very easy to use and very flexible. For example, I installed my own copy of SpamAssassin. It has a large set of services. Support is variable, but usually ok. They're very open about problems in their blog and forums. Do not choose DreamHost if you want high reliability. Go with Pair for that.
+
 
+
*From Erik Bertrand 2010/06/10 - UU Congregation in Milford (NH) has used DreamHost since we went live with a totally redesigned website in February 2010. We actually get hosting for free through our 401(c)(3) non-profit status. You need only provide them with an official IRS determination letter to qualify. Service is good and uptime looks to be excellent, but performance isn't the best for sure.  We're running a PHP-based CMS (CMS Made Simple) with a MySQL database back-end.

*From JoyceD 11/7/2007 - I've used it for ~8 yrs. & it has improved over time. I've only used it for services that our UU host, Jim Hermann, has offered free. THANKS, JIM! He serves over 100 UU congregations and organizations.
+
*From BruceC 2007/11/7 - I've used this service for many years. Our main pages are still hosted on a local community based service for non-profit pages.  But they don't offer server programs so I have been migrating more and more to uuism.  First was our domain name, then email lists, then the forums and now we are rebuilding our site in Joomla.  Site availability has been much better than 99%.  Response to emailed questions is usually within a couple of hours.
+
*From PatG 12/10/2007 - We've used for for the past two or three years for all of our hosting needs - main site, mailing lists, blog, and web calendar. Jim is a great help providing tech support and assistance especially when he hears a desperate call for help.
