I’m sure that you’ve noticed. I have, and it drives me crazy everyday. But Dreamhost has been having some major speed issues over the past several days. I frequently check their status page, but everything listed there says that it’s been resolved.
I finally contacted support a few times and I was told they got a server, that’s causing issues. It’s the server that I’m on, go figure. So they are in the process of moving everyone’s account off of that guy and onto any server. Who knows how long that’s supposed to take.
In the meanwhile, I thank you for baring with me during this time. It’s funny that this is all happening during my first month of being on Dreamhost. I remember sitting and longing for that day that my old host’s subscription would expire and that I could move. I remember not being able to wait any longer and moving anyway.
Was all of this in vain? Would I have to go back to 1and1 with my tail between my legs? I think not. I’ve gotten too many good reports about Dreamhost to nix them after just one month. And come it, it’s a shared host; there’s no account for what the next idiot on your server is doing.
