DreamHost is very transparent about their pricing, unlike many companies who provide promotional or slashed pricing to attract new customers. The most basic shared hosting for the simple website is of 2.59 $/month, for the first year. And, If you are looking for something more robust, they have an unlimited shared upgrade, or you can also look for their managed WordPress hosting like “DreamPress”, “VPS” or dedicated servers.
