Sydney calling here … just been looking at the various hosting plans on offer by DreamHost. I have also read this forum (and a few others) and from what I read, it appears customer service delays may be an issue for me if I were to join.
Obviously living in another hemisphere is a worry in terms of time zone differences and so on, however I wonder if 24/7 email really means that? I suspect not.
Further, I am worried about latency issues … this is certainly no fault of “DreamHost” but something I must consider if I am to take up a hosting package.
I wonder how many Australians are hosting their sites with DreamHost and their experiences?
