Sorry - Mods this was supposed to be a reply to another post (very sorry new here)
The post this was supposed to be a reply to is here:
No worries! The thread you referenced is an old thread anyways. It's good to put new updated information in a new thread vs. an old.
I run a Magento based eShop and had SERIOUS issues with Dreamhost w/ regards to speed and downtime.
They serverd me really well for a really long while and then I installed Magento which was a DOG on their server (which is understandable - Magento is a pig w/ regards to resources but is very flexible and solid once setup properly).
So... My 0.02 goes to Media Temple and their Dedicated Virtual (DV) setup - very good for me.
