To get the price of $24.95/ 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: $29.95/mo.
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.
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.
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 30.000 monthly visitors. You get the premium version of the Jetpack plugin which has a value of $299/year and you get 3 calls/mo to your own Concierge Phone Support if needed! 1-click install of Woo Commerce is an optional extra.
Need to pay for at least 1 year in advance to get this price. $29.99/mo with a month-to-month contract. Get discounted hosting with a 3 year plan: $19.99/mo.
All of the Bluehost web hosting plans include a FREE Domain. Domain Whois Privacy costs an extra $0.99/mo with this plan which is pretty expensive compared with some domain name registars that give away this for free. All their VPS plans comes with SSD storage included in the price. SiteLock Monitoring is another $1.99/mo and can be very useful to have – at least if you really need your site to always be 100% healthy and to reduce the potential downtime from malware and virus attacks by hackers. The SEO extra feature costs $2.99/mo and is not something I would recommend considering how the product (which consists of SEO guides) can easily be replaced by free info found on reputable site online – More info here.
