I’m on Dreamhost since June 2003 (yes, ten years!) and I’m happy with the service and speed of my sites.
Since two years ago I run a site which is growing day by day and some months gets up to 400k page view (even if a bit are from spam bots they still hit the server). I don’t see slowdowns, but I started to ask myself if I need a VPS, both for the cpu my site uses and to be able to use xcache and other interesting things.
Is there a way to know how much memory I use right now to understand how much I would need (up to 600mb is affordable to me right now) and if the expense is in some way justified by current site resource usage?
Sorry for bad english.
