Hello I’ve been shopping around looking for a new web host. My current host that I’m with, which is a “shared” hosting plan has become very very slow and unresponsive, and have had nothing but bad customer support with them.
I’ve been considering a VPS server because I’m sick and tired of slow-as-sh*t shared hosting, but unsure if its the right route to take. I’ve never ran a web server, and know next to nothing about Linux. So, how hard is it to create and maintain a VPS server here?
Even though I’ve seen quite a few “stay far away from DreamHost” forum posts I figured I’d go ahead and post anyways.
So, would you guys recommend using DreamHost, is it worth the time and money to invest in this company. Also, is running a VPS something a “noob” like myself can do easily?
I guess I should also note I run about 5 different WordPress websites, and more will be added over time.
And one last thing - @ the rate of $15/month is that on a month-by-month basis or is DreamHost one of those web hosts that require you to pay for a year or more up front? - Thanks
