    This is what i need:
    Multiple Domains
    MySQL

    This is what i like:
    ssh access

    Shared hosting is prob fine for my purposes at the moment, though an inexpensive private situation may be intriguing.


    The story:

    Ive had dreamhost for ~4 or 5 years now. A friend bought a domain, i hosted his splash page temporarily. I have referred him to dreamhost but they are refusing to move the domain to his account if it is referred from me.

    I have referred multiple people to them but since I hosted this guy's splash page before telling him to use dreamhost they are making a stink.

    Hostgator allow SSH access. Just open a ticket to ask for it after you order.

    I can't really believe Dreamhost is still in business. I left them about 3 years ago.

    A company i do some work for signed up for their VPS service and it was down more than it was up. Guess things don't change much around there.

    There are a lot of great hosts out there. I was with DH for about 3 or 4 years and never had any problems with them. I would give you the url for my hosting company but I guess thats grounds for a ban unless I pay for a subscription. :crying: Which I will be doing soon.
