I really like what Dreamhost has offered with their Happy Dreamhost-package. But I have problems with the response times from Germany. I know the ping is not necessarily important for a website. But if you wait nearly half a second for every page-element to response, it slows down your page immensely. I don’t have any websites online which make money because of this issue. But I’d like to, because it’s hard to find a provider offering these services.
This problem is exists since I have this package. Is there any “trick” to speed up the access from Germany - since it’s nearly the only country Dreamhost has problems with?
