Dreamhost for basic wordpress blog? please can anyone helps me


Hi! My friend has recently asked me to help with making a blog and I’ve never worked with wordpress (I do web dev, just never used WP before) and so I said sure.

He wanted to use this theme he’s had his eye on for a while so he already bought that and now I just need to setup the hosting and basically do some little tweaks.

Anyway I was wondering which you would suggest. A year or two ago when I wanted to host my own website, a couple people recommended me Sitegroud. And now when I search around I see a lot of people recommend Dreamhost. So I’m wondering if you guys have any recommendations.

Siteground has plans at 3.95 and 5.95 which seem very nice since I’m sure he won’t be raking 1k hits a day at the get go, whereas dreamhost has WP plans at 7.95.

My original plan was to go with siteground 3.95 plan and upgrade if it ever came to it, but I want to hear your opinion on this.


PS. Totally open to new hosting places, we’re located in Canada if it matters.
