Service in and out on new wordpress install

I’m new to dreamhost and hosting wordpress in general so it is possible that this is just a problem with my understanding of the service, but it seems like the host keeps going down.

I have a fully hosted site at that will work for 5 minutes and then not the next 10 (rinse repeat etc…). is this a problem with dreamhost, or did I not set up the account properly?

The homepage is working for me. However the site has broken links. Could you be more specific about your problems?
