Using Google's Single Sign-On

Overview

DreamHost offers the ability to use Google's Single Sign-On (SSO) service to sign up with a new DreamHost account, or log into your existing DreamHost panel.

SSO helps to simplify the login process since you do not have to create or remember another user/password combination. Your Google account is the only login details you need.
