Dreamhost Vs InMotion Hosting 2020

by Adam @ WPCrafter   |   Last Updated: September 8, 2021

Dreamhost is one of the oldest web hosting companies and the first web hosting company that I used in 2003.
InMotion Hosting is a web hosting company that offers shared hosting, reseller hosting, and VPS’s.
Current Pricing: $7.95
Current Pricing: $2.95

For this one, I am going to have to give the win to InMotion Hosting. The main problems with Dreamhost are that they use a custom control panel that is overly confusing versus the industry standard cPanel. As far as performance goes, their servers tend to be much slower and provide a poor experience for your website visitors. InMotion Hosting provides free SSL certificates, uses the industry standard control panel, and provides much better customer support experience.

Dreamhost Pros

  • US Based 24/7 Support
  • Free SSL Certificate

InMotion Hosting Pros

  • FAST Web Hosting with FREE SSDs
  • FREE SSL Certificate
  • FREE 1-click installer
  • FREE cPanel for easy server management
  • FREE domain to get you started

Dreamhost Cons

Dreamhost doesn't use the industry standard cPanel control panel to manage your web hosting account. This could be good, but I found their proprietary control panel difficult to navigate and overly complicated. Now Dreamhost was the first web hosting company I ever used, from 2003 - 2007. The reason I stopped using them is that they completely shut down my account and deleted my entire hosting account because of some baseless complaint some random person made. Imagine losing everything, all your website, all your emails, this is what they did to me and his is why I would never use them, not even if you paid me.

InMotion Hosting Cons

If you are transferring from another web host to InMotion Hosting, the transfer process can take some time. With so many new customers signing up each day for new website hosting, the transfer queue can get backed up. This is why I created a tutorial video on how to speed up the process by doing the majority of it yourself, fast and easy.
