I’ve hosted a personal website with DreamHost for well over a year, and I’ve been extremely happy with them.
Now, I’m the new online director for the organization I work for and we are strongly considering a switch to a new host. I don’t have specific statistics at the moment, but I’m talking about something bigger and more complex than personal websites, like probably a few gigs per month of bandwidth and such. It would require a database (ex. MySQL), and I can’t estimate at the moment how many queries that database would get. There would be a dozen or so email accounts that would be quite active. Sorry if this description is a bit vague, I don’t have more specific numbers with me right now.
Being a happy customer, I have suggested DreamHost as an option for our new host, but have only hosted personal websites with them. I want people’s experiences with them for hosting sites on the scale I just described with DreamHost. How well does DreamHost handle such larger sites?
We’re still weeks away from any decision, but I want to make sure our options are explored now. Thank you.
