Pros and cons


Hi. I’m thinking of using DH. Just wanted to know the pros and cons of using DH. I’d appreciate the input.



Web based control panel
Account ‘size’ - diskspace allocations etc
Freedom, they let you do most things
No trouble with billing.
Uptime (not too many troubles for me…)


Support is sluggish these days, averaging a shade under 24 hours for me for questions.


The ‘Pros’ that helped me decide to host with DreamHost;

Unlimited host domains / sub-domains.
Unlimited MySQL databases.
Shell access.
Disk space and bandwidth increase weekly.
PayPal support.

‘Cons’ that I’ve encountered since being a customer;

Web panel can be very slow at times.
Two web site outages (that I noticed), but both were resolved quickly.
Response from support can be a little slow at times, especially on weekends.
Some new accounts can take a few days to be approved.

Main pro is the price - for any of the plans it’s quite reasonable.
