I cannot recommend dreamhost to anyone. For 10 days so far dreamhost servers have been blacklisted as spammers by several major providers and all emails sent to those providers are bounced immediately.
This is bad, but stuff happens, the unacceptable part is how dreamhost dealt with it.
First for one week they ignored the issue, there were no replies to support tickets I submitted (which are supposed to be replied to within 24 hours) at all. After more than a week, they finally posted a status message saying they are aware of the problem (did it take them a week??), but have no information and will not provide any information how and when that problem will be fixed. For 3 days since then not a single other notice, piece of information or anything. In the meantime my company cannot send emails to most of our clients for 11 days by now.
If you need to run a business, AVOID DREAMHOST
