Ever since DreamHost “decommissioned” (a.k.a. disabled) their servers status reporting, I’ve been using some third party monitoring services. Recently (in the past half month), there were at least 5 instances of downtime reported from 2 locations other than my own connections. And since they are “free services” which only monitor every 30 - 60 minutes, I can only assume that they totalled some 3 &1/2 hours of website unavailability (as reported) in the past 18 days, which is NOT GOOD.
To be fair, I’m quite sure that most of these instances are much less than an hour, perhaps as little as 5 minutes, but with the official status page not doing its job, this is the most reliable way of telling what’s really happening. Since I am also accountable for my own clients, I can only render these numbers to them, which make me look bad.
So my question is: is DreamHost going to just keep being a hosting company with fabulous prices but “unreportable” (if not unspeakable) uptime?
