The Enhanced dedicated servers
The rest of the hardware and features are the same amongst all these three options.
The CPUs are Intel Xeon with 12 cores and 24 threads.
All the DreamHost plans come with their custom control panel and it is apparently not possible to change to cPanel or something else.
Pretty high prices
Price-wise these dedicated servers do not offer the best value compared with similar servers by other hosts.
I would hope that they could offer lower prices when taken into consideration that they do not offer 24/7 live chat support or expensive control panels like cPanel or Plesk.

Hosting plan features
With expert WordPress support, fast SSD storage, HTTP/2, Nginx and free CDN this plan is one of the absolute best choices for WordPress hosting. Maybe the fastest hosting of them all. The CDN is delivered by KeyCDN. Kinsta also does server-level caching and offers a custom-developed caching plugin for WordPress with auto purging when changes are made to your site.
Daily backups included is also really nice and adds even more value to this plan. With the staging area feature, you can easily create a copy of your site and test out new changes and plugins then push them to your live site with a click.

All of the web hosting plans by FastComet renews at the same initial prices, and their dedicated server hosting is no exception. You might want to compare these servers vs. those offered by LiquidWeb which also offers "no fancy" monthly billing. You can get the listed price here with monthly billing, and currently, there are no discounts for going with longer billing cycles.
Included in the price
You get a lot of nice features included with these servers. All SSD storage, choice of your preferred location in of the 8 different global data center locations, included cPanel/WHM and lots of server hardware resources. Network out speeds starting at 5000 Mbit and increasing for the more expensive servers.
Expensive backups and add-ons
The daily cloud backups currently costs $24.95/mo and includes 10 independent daily snapshots. The SpamExperts addon is also expensive at about $20/mo.
Great customer guarantees
I like that there are no setup fees for these servers and also that they have a 7 day money back guarantee.
