To get the price of $35.95/ mo you need to pre pay for 1 year of hosting. If you want to pay on a month-to-month basis the price will be slightly higher: $39.95/mo.

Plan features

The DreamPress hosting plans has lots of bells and whistles for your WordPress site. They will install WP for you with several plugins and themes that are considered "battle-tested" by DreamHost. They promise to serve your web pages lightning fast with features like SSD storage, Object Caching, HTTP2, PHP 7 and the Jetpack plugin. You also get access to WordPress Expert Support 24/7.

Migrating to DreamPress

The WordPress Migration Service costs $99 and promises to seamlessly move your WordPress installation over to your new hosting without downtime. It costs $99 which I think is a bit expensive considering you are also moving your hosting to this company. It could be good value though if you have lots of content and plugins that would make your site a real hassle to move and might require payed plugins to get the job done anyways.

Domain price

A .com domain is $11.99 for the first year and slightly more after that, which is great considering that the Whois Privacy is free.

Conclusion

They only accept credit and debit cards and that is a slight drawback. The 30 day money back guarantee is OK. The limiting of how many websites you can host is another drawback. Or at least it could be, if you have multiple sites.

The performance features of the DreamPress plans are nice and will help your sites load fast with features like Brotli compression, HTTP/2 and the Nginx web server. Your site will also get HTTPS by default. If you outgrow your DreamPress plan you can upgrade with a simple click of the mouse, unless you are already hosted with the most powerful one.

Dreamhost states that this plan is suitable for websites with around 60.000 monthly visitors. You get the premium version of the Jetpack plugin which has a value of $299/year and you get 5 calls/mo to your own Concierge Phone Support if needed! 1-click install of Woo Commerce is an optional extra. Also, you get a staging site that you can use for testing changes to your WordPress site before making them live.

Same price whether you pay monthly or yearly. Price is currently on sale by 25% to 33% which means you get a decent discount for your first order. You can lock in a long length billing cycle for maximum discount!

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https for free and automatically. The cost of upgrading to SSD drives depends on which VPS plan you choose. SSD is optional, but we included the cost for that feature in our price. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is also included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans. cPanel is an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2/mo per extra standard IP address. Hostwinds also offer DDos protected IP addresses, as well as C-Class IP addresses. Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups makes sure your data is safe and accessible and costs only $1/mo and is performed daily. WindSpeed is a one time service offered by Hostwinds which claims to be able to provide information which can be used to significantly speed up a website. Windshield is a security extra which adds a shield to your site.

Data center location

Choose between Seattle and Dallas in the USA to be your server's location.

24/7 USA based support team

I have mostly had great interactions with the Hostwinds technical support team. For technical support requests you need to submit a ticket. They have been amazing to me and always helped out fixing anything I've asked them. Sometimes they have been slow to answer me though and I've had to ask them twice on one occasion where the low tier support simply did not know the answer but luckily a higher tier specialist got my server issue fixed. They do have 24/7 live chat sales support on their website (popup in the bottom right when visiting their website from a desktop computer).

Conclusion

If you need web hosting on a server in the USA then I would strongly suggest to consider a Hostwinds plan. They get good scores from me for having lots of payment options, USA based support team, long money back guarantees and the best uptime guarantees. They also allow adult content to be hosted with them on all of their plans.

I would have liked to see SSD storage as in included feature at no extra cost. The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space, that can't be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat. With a huge selection of 10 different VPS plans you are sure to find a plan that suits your needs.

If you need to upgrade you can do so and they will migrate up to 5 of your sites for free to the more powerful server and your billing will protate.

Adult WordPress hosting allowed

This is one of the few WordPress web hosting plans that actually allow adult sexual content to be hosted with them. You will need to ask their support though as each such site with will have to be approved individually.

Conclusion

This is definitely one of the aboslute highest value and best WordPress web hosting plans.
