After being with Dreamhost for a little under 2 years I’ve decided to switch over to MyHosting. I’d had been using Dreamhost’s VPS service for the past few months as their shared hosting had lead to all of my sites being hacked twice, along with poor performance all around. Everything started out fine with their VPS, then came the downtime. I understand the company is growing and some problems might be expected, but on more than one occasion downtime was into the hours. Even this fact was really the deciding factor, it was performance even on a VPS was poor and was constantly having to reboot. The prices for VPS memory upgrades were also terrible $25 for 512MB memory this is on top of the normal monthly hosting fee.

After looking at many, many companies I had a couple in mind. I finally made the decision to switch to MyHosting. I was able to get a VPS with 5 times the memory for much less than I was currently paying. Although storage and bandwidth are limited with the new hosting the prices for upgrades are reasonable. Currently I’d nowhere near exceed the current limits anyway. If your looking for a new host MyHosting, might be the way to go. I’ll update again after breaking in the tires on the new server.
