I have to second that Domatic has been my host for over 8 years now and i cannot remember even a minute of downtime or being overloaded. They guys are professionals and keep the servers light in the load dept. I had moved around alot before them and aswell i tried dreamhost they seemed way overloaded then and im sure even now. Rock On!

Nice post and some great comments too. In my experience, Dreamhost are not only the worst host on the planet - they are one of the most badly-run businesses too. I blogged about them here Jim

The thing is, we don't really get that much traffic which is why we're still on the cheap server. Not really sure what the deal is with them. I'm sure we are just stuck on some shitty server - the one that - in my creative mind - I see smoking in a corner, coughing like an old man with little springs flying off every once in awhile. It's the shitty one! But they keep putting more on it and it just can't handle it. My husband just walked by and read your comment and agreed w/ you - he seconds Maybe that'll be the one? Thanks so much for the compliment! It's nice to have non-food people say something nice!! We'll let you know how it goes, Brett. Amy

Hey guys, sorry to hear about all the DreamHost trouble. I haven't had any, except for once or twice with email going down, but I'm on a different server. Also, my sites probably don't get as much traffic as yours. I've heard good things about, who is also in LA, but it will be interesting to see who you end up with. By the way, your site is really cool! Best of luck, -Brett

Hey, Brett. Yes... you're right... we're still on Dreamhost. Although we didn't get a year free, we did get some bit of a kickback for the problems we've been facing. Unfortunately, we have not had the time to switch over to a new host yet, but it's still in the works I PROMISE! Thanks for holding us to this promise (in a way!). Within the next month or so we'll be goners... I just wish we had a few hours to do a bit more research. But when we do our 'relationship' with dreamhost will be over. Thanks for checking us out!

I'm a DreamHost customer and I was just reading the DreamHost status blog, and I came across your post about the blingy problems. Under "amy jonny Says:" were the comments: "I’m so over this and dreamhost and, believe me, there will be a post on my blog discussing what’s happened." I clicked "amy jonny" and ended up here. I then wondered if you dumped DreamHost, so I did a traceroute to your site, and hey, you're still on DreamHost! ( So, did they give you a free year or something? :) Best regards from Denver

I've used BlueHost for quite a while and have always been happy with them. I see above that canarygirl's had some problems lately, but I haven't noticed any downtime. They do have Fantastico for easy WordPress installation and updates.

yeah i was wondering what was up with your server lately. couldn't access it at all :( I had dreamhost for about 5 years, about a year ago, and 4 of those years, I was raving mad at them. tons of crap like this happening all the time. but the price was right! PLUS they didn't charge or take money out of my account for about 3 yrs (then hit me with the 3 year bill last year) so i took what crap they gave me thinking, hell at least i am not paying for it. I am now (as of a year ago) on Peter's servers which are a bit more technically involved and not exactly what you are looking for, or I would offer up their name (i don't even know it hehe) but yeah, i am sorry you had to go through their stupid hell. :(

That sounds so incredibly frustrating.

Hey guys! What a pain in the ASS! I have been annoyed with my server lately, too...but just in the last week or so. I use BlueHost, and up until now, I have been extremely satisfied. I have been having eximstats outages recently, though...apparently there is someone overloading the thing, and they're trying to track them down. So, I guess what I'm saying is...Blue Host has been great (I use wordpress, too), though this last week or so has been not so great. They *are* really quick to fix outages, though. Just a quick call to their toll free and they have you back up. Hope this helps! :)
