  • I certainly have :)

    I have one dreamhost account with every service I can make work in it, and a couple of bits and pieces I mooch off other people ( or get from a free source (looking at migrating to GMail as a mail server now they have IMAP).
    • I too use dreamhost. The quality sucks but it's cheap and they offer TONS of disk space. I say it sucks because:
      1. They've had two significant break-ins that I'm aware of in the 9 months that I've been a customer and they only informed us of one of them. I discovered the other when I found one of my websites defaced.
      2. The performance is terrible. I use my account for Catalyst FastCGI development (NOT production) and a restart of my app takes about 30 seconds (compared to about 5 seconds on my Mac)

      So, I mainly use it for light development, brochure-ware websites, and backups of my encrypted or non-sensitive personal files. Unison makes it trivial to sync content from my home machine(s) to the server.

      I used for a while. I actually liked them a lot (great uptime and performance; very responsive support) but they did not permit ssh access and had very low disk quotas.

      I also tried for about two week before I got disgusted by their SLOW customer service (three business days to set up a new account? That's pretty hard to bear in the discount ISP market)

      I've used several enterprise ISPs too with good results, but of course that costs real money. :-)
      • I wouldn't say sucks... disk and bandwidth they rock, the arbitrary complexity is good ( I have about 10-15 sites there, all within the same plan ), and the installers and svn hosting and ssh access and most of the other stuff I care about is good.

        It's just the CPU is NOT plentiful.
