Fees and Charges
What set up fees are there for DreamHost services?
All DreamHost plans have a $49.95 one time set up fee which is waived if you pre-pay for a year or more of your plan.
If you upgrade or downgrade a plan, you won't have to pay the setup fee again. However, if your plan didn't originally have a set up fee (you signed up for it before there were set up fees), you will have to pay any set up fee there may be on the plan you upgrade or downgrade to.
There are no other set up fees for any DreamHost services! Note that set up fees are covered in the 97-day money-back guarantee.
There is no sales tax on any DreamHost purchase. There are no hidden charges of any kind.
What are the TOTAL fees for your hosting services?
Your total cost is the monthly price of the plan you sign up for, multiplied by the number of months you decide to prepay. There is also a one-time $49.95 setup fee for hosting plans, which is waived if you pre-pay for twelve months or more. This fee is the same for all plans.
If you do not already own a domain, you can register one through DreamHost for for free with any hosting plan. Any additional domain registrations are just $9.95/year. If you choose to register your domain elsewhere, the registrar will charge you a registration fee, which may by more or less than $9.95/year.
That's it! There are no other charges for hosting with us... no hidden fees at all!
