In our DreamHost review we found if you are willing to pay for 10 years in advance you will another incredible discount in pricing to just $5.95 a month. And if you want the option of a month to month you can do that for $10.95/mo. (but there would be a $49.95 set up fee). DreamHost offers wiki, forum, blog, and email customer support services. They do not have a telephone support number for you to call
