Lack of Support

DreamHost Support -

Submitted help ticket several hours ago. Due to a hardware issue on your side, my web site has been down for over 48 hours! No email advance notice, no notification of any kind. Now when I try to get help - it’s non - existant, and to make the situation worse - I need to pay if I want to speak with someone. How can you help resolve my issue - would rather not go through the hastle of switching providers but this is ridculous.

Help please!

Thanks for the reply. But the issue is still not resolved yet. The issue could have likely been fixed via a simple phone call, but now is taking the better part of a complete day via email. Dreamhost rebooted an apache server which impacted my cmkslect web site. I realize that typically a reboot would not effect service, but it still would have been great to get an an email with this info.

Here’s the error message I continue to get via IE browser when I enter the url …
