I would like to choose a host so my Wordpress site’s pages load very quickly & that when I have relevant Wordpress questions; that I don’t have a long wait to get tech support. Most hosting companies offering shared hosting seem to no longer be cramming a zillion sites onto one server so that some sites’ speed on that server get severely slowed down… probably because hosting companies now use ‘server grids’ and ‘server clouds’. Media Temple has server grids to accomodate traffic spikes. Amazon Web Services uses a “cloud” of servers to do the same. GoDaddy claims to have '4th generation servers: click on the “4GH vs The Rest” tab & notice Go Daddy claims they have ‘4th generation’ or cloud hosting and lists Dreamhost under the 2nd generation hosting.
So why choose Dreamhost?
