Please could you, or anyone, amplify that? Amid all the doomful descriptions of 8-day outages, it would be well worth having at least one thread which explains the compensating advantages of Dreamhost.
(DH is the only web host I know, so I can’t meaningfully contribute, beyond saying that I’ve always found DH efficient and helpful, and thankfully haven’t so far suffered any of these famous outages, but I suppose I’d better be prepared. I need to decide whether my emergency recovery route is going to be a temporary cheapo host that I use for 8 days while my server on Dreamhost is being restored, or whether it’s going to be a host that I actually migrate to.)
