A Small Orange - stay away, sold to EIG (Endurance International Group)

HostGator - the same, sold to EIG

DreamHost - sold to EIG

Bluehost - sold to EIG

HostMonster - sold to EIG.....and the list continues here and here also.

 

Right now if you are looking for cheap, reliable shared hosting you should try those in this order:

  • MDDHosting
  • StableHost
  • HawkHost

If you put it somewhere other than here, you need a pinned link to it in this section, otherwise people will most likely continue to ask here, instead of checking else where on the forums

DreamHost - sold to EIG

Where did you get this info, because its wiki link you pointed too. And if you google it a JOKE comes up on their blog from 2011 about having 5.3 million in their account and cpanel for everyone, etc.

So no dreamhost has not been sold to eig from anything I can tell. The blog and newsletter links are April Fools jokes ;)

If you're happy with your host, stay IMO.
