Is there a directory somewhere that explains how DreamHost organizes its computers?
When I signed up with DreamHost a few weeks ago I received a bunch of welcoming emails. One of those emails told me which FTP Server my website would be hosted on.
Sometimes everything works great and I have been able to create a small website that I will be adding more content to. But there have been times that my website appears to be down because I have not been able to view it with a web browser or connect to it with my FTP software.
When I am experiencing problems I go to http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/ and check the list but I have never found the name of my FTP Server listed. Usually what I find are messages about clusters that had problems or currently are experiencing problems. I presume that a cluster is a much larger organizational unit that includes many servers. But how am I suppose to know which cluster my server is part of? Or more importantly, how am I suppose to figure out if any of the messages on http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/ apply to my DreamHosting account?
I have tried logging in to https://panel.dreamhost.com/ but the only information I found there was the name of my FTP Server.
