A few Days back I mentioned about my migration to Knownhost VPS, and I decided to close my Dreamhost account. Why pay for something that you are not using or don’t want to use?
Is int it?
I wrote this tutorial for future reference for everyone so that if you have a Dreamhost web-hosting account, you might like to refer it in future.
Make sure you cancel your account and also check your Paypal recurring list. If you used your credit card for payment, make sure it’s not listed in the billing section of the account you are about to close. This will ensure that you won’t be charged by mistake. If you face any kind of problem, instantly get in touch with customer care of particular service.
Now, follow the steps mentioned to close your Dreamhost Hosting account.
In Dreamhost, login to your Dreamhost panel and click on Billing > Manage account.
On the next screen, you need to put a check mark on “Yeah Yeah, I know. I’d still like to cancel.” and click on account settlement.
On the next screen, you will see messages regarding your remaining payment or payment you ill receive from them. Read that and after that click on Continue to Finalize Cancellation.
On the next screen, you need to enter your cPanel password and rate the hosting and click on submit.
Note: In my case, I had to repeat the process thrice, so you better make sure, you are performing and seeing all the process as mentioned above.
Once everything is done as mentioned, you will see the final confirmation message stating, your account has been closed.
