How to Install WordPress CMS on DreamHost?

I personally suggest the newbie bloggers go with either BlueHost or HostGator as they’re the best shared hosting providers in the industry. However, we also suggest another good hosting provider “DreamHost” which is both cheap and reliable.

DreamHost has been in the industry since 15 years offering valuable shared hosting services to the users. The best thing about DreamHost is that you’ll get 1 free domain once you signup with them. You can get 1 year hosting for $107 i.e., $8.95 per month which is a bit costlier compared to other servers.

Personal Advice: My recommendation would be BlueHost over DreamHost.
