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.

Its terrible my sites with Dreamhost have been down since the last 12 hours now and they don't even take the time to answers their tickets or to answer the phone. Honestly seing this without giving any news is not a behavior appropriate for a company like them.

Having our website down is killing the productivity of our mission as a non profit, organization. We can't find out why our site is down and all we get back are offers to renew a moribund email account we haven't used in many years. Our organizational site seems not to exist even though we have had it for 13+ years!!!! no response no customer service. I will pay for gods sake, just tell me what to do. Why does anybody use this host? Nightmare Host is more like it.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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!

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").

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 ...

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....
