I am thinking about switching to DreamHost. My current host I am having issues with - they disabled one of my forums (which only had 20 users and about 250 posts on it) because my whole account was using more then 10% of the shared server CPU. I own about 5 forums, the most popular one has 80 members and 2,500 posts. I also own about 10 websites, but only one or two get a few thousdand uniques a day.
I’m just wondering if I should switch to DH, or if I will have the same problems here as I did with my last host (CPU usage.) It’s not like my forums or anything are big, I only have about 5 and none of them are huge and they’re either powered by IPB 1.3 or MyBB 1.x (both legit and good forum softwares.)
What are your opinions, should I switch to DH?
I’ve already been through 5 webhosts since July 2003, so I’m really not all that crazed about moving to yet another host knowing I’ll probably have problems with them and have to move to a 7th, 8th, 9th, etc. host down the line.
Also: are there any REALLY big websites/forums that you guys know of that are on the DreamHost shared server? I’d just like to see about how big I can expect to develop before I might have to buy a dedicated server somewhere someday.
