I think it depends on which server you reside and which area you are in.
If it is slow to access all the site, it is your internet connection.
If it is faster to access other sites than DreamHost, and you have this problem constanly, it is possible that the server you reside may be overloaded. In this situation, you may consider to contact DH support. They will check the server and take furthur actions.
