I’ve used Dreamhost since June 2012 with ZERO issues. When I create a new site I always use it because of the one-click install for WordPress & Piwigo (gallery) as well as the FAST customer service turn around time for every question I have. I can also Chat Live with a customer service rep or hit up the forums or wiki for support. I absolutely ALWAYS recommend Dreamhost for anyone wanting to create a website.

When I’m at events networking, I always want people to want to keep my card and let it stand out. Everyone knows about the nostalgia associated with creating mixed tapes. I picked out a design from moo that had 4 different blank tapes. On the label I put my website motto: lick it or leave it. I recommend them to anyone who doesn’t have a set design for their brand.
