I have just signed up as a Dreamhost user, I am brand new and just had a couple of comments to make about my first impressions.
The first thing I noticed is that my control panel runs very slow, which makes things difficult to get all set up. Especially when every little feature is organized onto different pages and many of them I don’t get access to. I don’t get access to them because of the limitations of my account but they’re all right there cluttering up my work area.
I have to say it’s the ugliest control panel I’ve ever had to be looking at. Can you please go for a simpler design, get rid of the bevelled graphics and cheesy attempts at a business type of header. If it were just text that would be fine with me, perhaps it would load faster.
It is very hard to navigate, some of the help links don’t even take you to the right place. It’s even worse because the help shows up in the same window you were viewing, so afterwards you have to exit out and go back and watch your page load again.
Please do something about this atrocity of a control panel.
