I'm so desperate to find a faster host, I'm willing to move from my prepaid server.
I have a site that has 400-600 visitors a day; expecting growth in the next six months. Many pages are php/mysql driven. My host is dismally slow when it comes to php/mysql, so I'm losing visitors. I need the techy stuff like shell access, phpmyadmin, cron, etc. It will take me AGES to migrate my sites over because of the database/ newsletter/ autoresponder/ etc. elements so I want to be 200% sure I have the right host.
What is your honest opinion? Will DreamHost be fast for a site like this? Can someone show me an example of a fast php/mysql app on DreamHost? Please email me with your frank opinions or post them here.
