Taking Chances with Dreamhost

I’m taking the chance on Dreamhost hosting. I’ve read the good the bad and the ugly, however I’m still checking it out.

    I been with Dreamhost for about 3 months and so far no complaints. They have everything on that I need and have to say that whilst the control panel is BUTT ugly it works and saves some time with bulk edit features.

    They are one of the handful of hosts that do at a reasonable price.

    I use one account with Bluehost for testing and find it a bit slow though? I have wondered if it is my firewall or the server. If you find it good then maybe it is my firewall.
