So, the past few weeks have been a bit hectic due to the blog transfer…especially with working on getting the hang of WordPress and figuring out what plugins I need. Now that everything is settled, I can finish my DreamHost review.
Since I am a novice at all the transferring stuff, I had Jacqui from Wacky Jacqui’s Designs do my transfer. She is a WordPress master! DreamHost operates mainly on FTP, so it only took her about a day to get everything transferred over. I got in there & played around with plugins, and then she went in and finished up getting the layout fixed and other odds and ends. I only crashed everything once and fixed it myself, which isn’t too bad in my book. Overall, it was quick and easy.
The server uptime has been great. There have been no outages at all, which is a great improvement over Blogger. Plus, when major updates come down, DreamHost will install them for you. I’m also able to get in via FTP to edit stuff if I need to. The best part is that the WordPress panel is super easy to navigate.
Overall, I am still impressed with Dreamhost. Now that I know what I’m doing, it’s easy sailing. The price is right & the uptime is perfect. If you’re looking for a new host or wanting to start your own site, you definitely need to check out Dreamhost.
I received free hosting for a year to help facilitate my review.
