I have kick butt hosting through Dreamhost, but I was having some slowness issues around all my WordPress sites that run content from a database. I decided to try out a virtual private server and wow… what a difference.
You can only get it if you are already a Dreamhost customer. You use a simple slider to pick the size of your virtual server container including processor and RAM and then bamm. You have a server container all your own.
I think I will contact Dreamhost to see if I can post pics of the control panel because it is great. It charges you for the amount of processor and RAM you use and you can even use the slide at any time to increase or decrease your virtual server container.
