We have tried pinging DreamHost website using our server and the website returned the above results. If dreamhost.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access DreamHost - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as panel.dreamhost.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Bobby Lee · 26 February 2014 - 08:46

Email is not working correctly. Please check you servers.

Roger Dodger · 18 February 2014 - 11:07


I get these messages almost every week. Our company e-mail is regularly down or requires muitliple login attempts until it works. The email interface also looks like something that was designed back in 1994.

Veeolay Gree · 28 January 2014 - 05:41

no email. this blows.

Linda Knost · 7 January 2014 - 19:25

My site is inaccessible, both for admins and the general public.

Kasra Sa · 7 January 2014 - 00:57

Is the server down today? Our website is down and it seems it's from their server side. I can't even login to my account. What's going on!!!

Jaclyn D'Alessandro · 9 December 2013 - 08:30

Down once again. Dreamhost is the absolute worst. Support is horrific. Will be switching providers immediately.

Azeezaly Jaffer · 4 December 2013 - 14:24

i have not been able to send messages for 4 hours now. #Dreamhost absolutely sucks!

Paul Robert Edwards · 3 November 2013 - 10:26

Our sites have been inaccessible since yesterday afternoon. I am looking into changing hosting companies now. Support keeps deteriorating.

Yonael Teklu · 28 October 2013 - 07:20

All the sites I manage have been offline since Saturday morning as they are trying to restore service to a number of VPS servers that are down. I hope the servers will be up and running by today or I am going to be in deep trouble...

John F Rickinger · 9 October 2013 - 07:19

I am unable to get my email... I have a busy day and need my business email. Sure wish there was people to contact when this happens.

Diana VetCor Practices · 27 August 2013 - 08:11

We have nearly 100 websites, but only one is hosted with Dream Host and it's the only one that is down right now. There's definitely an issue.

Ryan Burdick · 25 August 2013 - 18:05

I'm down and can't access my FTP. =v(

George Gurrola · 26 July 2013 - 06:32

unable to login to dreamhost panel???

Peter Coates · 11 July 2013 - 11:40

I have been very happy with my 5 years at dreamhost. Very little down time. There was a rough patch about 3 1/2 years ago, but that was resolved quickly and politely and little problem since. email is an issue today, but this is only the second or third outage in those 5 years.

Pavel Sotnikov · 27 June 2013 - 08:15

Down again right now

Tammy Follis · 22 June 2013 - 09:06

This is the last time for me. Sick of dreamhost and their lack of regard for their customers. I have never dealt with a company with such poor service. My site has been down many times for a week or poor and in the last 6 weeks it's been down or barely moving 4 of those weeks. Google has tanked after 7 years of built revenue. I wouldn't recommend dreamhost for a free site to my worst enemy.

Chris Fernandes · 21 June 2013 - 11:42

Down again. Internal server error.

Chris Fernandes · 18 June 2013 - 12:37

Site is down. Getting a 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable message. Same client site that kept going down months ago with the same issue.

Arnoulde Jacobes · 18 June 2013 - 10:21

My Mail is not working. I cannot send or received mail. Obviously I am online, because I am here! I've tried Rebooting my computer several times. Ran Disk Utility. Mail is still not working .... Mail was working earlier this morning at 8:47 a.m. Time now is 10:21 a.m. Pacific Time.

Kimberlee Jarvis · 12 June 2013 - 06:19

I cannot get on the website nor get my email. Is it down?

Brooke Buckley Mills · 7 June 2013 - 08:30

I have been unable to log on since June 4th, 2013. I am starting to panic, I have a small business that isn't right now. Please keep us posted on where you are with the fix.

Andrew Stevens · 3 June 2013 - 14:18

I am unable to open my website - this has been going o now for several hours. The same thing happened about a week ago and I was down for almost 5 hours.
What is going on at Deamhost - I am not impressed with thr amount of problems that seem to be occuring constantly!

Eric Barry · 15 May 2013 - 10:37

Down again in SF. UGH.

Molli Benson · 24 April 2013 - 17:04

When will this be back up?.. It is hurting my business!!!

Bleecker First · 7 April 2013 - 08:42

My website has been down for **over 1 week now** - according to Dreamhost, "web hosting services are being affected by hardware maintenance due to issues with your shared web hosting server mystique. Due to issues with the RAID controller, we are replacing the hardware for this server and will be restoring all data from our backup server to the new hardware. ... once the backup connection is established, we will reload your web service and will serve your sites again using the data on the backup server. The data will be mounted over the network to allow your hosting services to remain online for the
duration of the process. Please note, if those backups are older than the most current version of your site, you will have to upload/change those files again. "

So: no website for over **1 week.** And when I get it back - if I get it back - it will likely be an older version. Meanwhile, I have not been able to send out my monthly blog post to my regular readers. My Google results (which I had built up over a year) are rapidly going to crap. People can't find me if they're looking for something in my sector; people who know where I am think I've closed my business.

Any musicians out there? I feel a song coming on.. maybe something like "Dreamhost Breaks Servers" (check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSUb6ejl9Ms for "United Breaks Guitars").

Nathan Beam · 29 March 2013 - 12:28

Getting constant page load errors out of the blue... Thanks again dreamhost... your 75% reliability guarantee strikes again...

Aaren Viviana Ilmatar · 27 March 2013 - 11:55

I hope they're not selling this as 99.8% availability...

Jeffrey Long · 26 March 2013 - 18:11

Down for almost 3 hours. Hello Dreamhost, what's up?

Eric Barry · 26 March 2013 - 17:44

Down right now in SF, no access to sites or Dreamhost.

E Marie Robertson · 26 March 2013 - 17:36

My site has been up all day, but both hosted domains and two emails are inaccessible right now. As is the Dreamhost customer panel. Handy.

Nathan Beam · 20 March 2013 - 05:14

I think it is obvious now that dreamhost has no Business Continuity Plan / Not Disaster Recovery plan... Seriously? For a company of your size I had expected a bit more. This whole incident (and the ongoing site outages I have had in the past several months not related to this) has me really considering completely switching up hosting providers...

Josie King · 20 March 2013 - 00:15

We are in Sydney Australia. Time is 6:15pm March 20 & our site has been down all day. This has affected our business as clients have been wanting to access our site and can't. Bad form Dreamhost. A back up system not in place? I dunno - seems the logical question ...

Cedres VillarĂ¡n · 20 March 2013 - 00:00

My site is down also!! www.newsatlatin.com can't access to my ftp cottonwood server neither

Dortha Hise · 19 March 2013 - 21:23

A client's site is down at www.chi-to-be.com and we haven't been able to access the site, similar to others reportings...

Jennifer Wilcox · 19 March 2013 - 20:44

Dreamhost has shut my website down in Australia! I too have major traffic and people trying to book into classes. Apparently there is a power outage in California? Is this true? It is so inconvenient!

Joy Johnson · 19 March 2013 - 19:05

Site is DOWN. Bloody annoying. Ive tried different places to check it out to see if its just my net.

Marlon Rice · 19 March 2013 - 18:35

WTF!!! My site's been down for hours!!

Eric Wise · 19 March 2013 - 17:46

My site is down as well.

Nathan Beam · 19 March 2013 - 17:37

My site has been down for going on 3 hours now... I am pretty unhappy to say the least...

Elke Porter · 19 March 2013 - 17:15

My website is down, and when I went to dreamhost, they said that there was a power outage today.

Alexander Gudich · 11 March 2013 - 09:11

my site appears to be down - innovatesf.com and it says there's something wrong with the DNS

Nathan Beam · 4 March 2013 - 07:11

My site is still bloody down. No site, no FTP, nothing... I switched to dreamhost because there was supposed to be much less of this. As much as I hated goDaddy's panel, this is seriously making me want to switch back as I had almost 0 downtime with them....

Rob Farber · 3 March 2013 - 15:25

my site and email are down right now. is anyone elses?

Alessia Fabbri · 1 March 2013 - 06:41

I'm down right now, no one else?!

Dave Seidman · 14 February 2013 - 12:28

down for all our sites and DBs

Nathan Beam · 14 February 2013 - 12:19

Ditto all... totally down. I am on their lower tier hosting solution but honestly...

Chris Fernandes · 14 February 2013 - 12:08

yet again, it is down. Same issues as last time! Very frustrating since I am trying to work on a client site.

Chris Fernandes · 12 February 2013 - 13:13

It's still having problems. 500 Internal Server Errors, Database connection errors.Keep going back and forth from being fine to being down, seemingly every few minutes and randomly.

LAKAWA · 12 February 2013 - 11:49

I'm down too. Of course just did an eblast to my database a few hours ago...

Nostalgia Film · 12 February 2013 - 11:43

I have major traffic coming to my website today--potential clients due to a major publication feature, so this is a terrible day for this to happen... I'm e-mailing them about status and potential compensation for the outage.

Ernst Miarka · 28 January 2013 - 02:20

I have no connection for hours

Bob Gardner · 21 January 2013 - 07:14

AS of 9:13 AM CST.. I am unable to connect to my site and email

Michelle O'Brien · 8 June 2012 - 11:03

Yes, I seem to be unable to access dreamhost at the moment from any browser.
