Anyway, they got out of the business unannounced and just pulled the plug on my site.
In the past couple of years I had tried at least a half dozen web hosting companies and hadn't been happy with any of them for one reason or another. Then a friend recommended Dreamhost......it got off to a rocky start when there was some problem about setting up my domain properly. But their customer service in dealing with it was beyond amazing--they actually *took responsibility* for the problem, fixed it in a matter of hours and gave me four months of free hosting for my trouble.
Since then Dreamhost has continued to exceed my expectations on a daily basis. They're very reasonably priced but they could triple their prices and I'd stay with them with out question because they're just so good....
Having to switch webhosts is a pain, and I'm glad there's one less thing to worry about on a daily basis. Not that there aren't other good hosting outfits but I haven't personally dealt with any that are even close to Dreamhost...
Add another point dreamhost. I love those guys. I use them for all my hosting. I have tried a few different ones, but then i stumbled on dreamhost's site and have been a very happy customer ever since. Their people really know their stuff, great service, great features, great communication, and aweseome newsletters. Their newletters are funny and informative. I could not be happier with them.
