Hi Kay,

I work with a number of providers, and use Dreamhost along with several
others. Dreamhost is sort of like buying your flour in bulk at WinCo - its
really cheap and there's plenty of stuff you get for your  buck. On the
other hand, you cannot depend on great bandwidth at all times, and they have
some other limitations as well.

They do have one click installs that cover a wide range of uses - for
example, Im involved in a number of Joomla based projects and that's really
simple to set up on dreamhost. You can also have an unlimited number of

On the other hand, I think its very problematic that they will ever go out
of their way to support Revolution, and they will never be the experts at
Revolution that Runtime will.
