Experiences in Web Hosting

Paul Kafasis:

Major hosting provider Dreamhost.com had a scheduled but overly-long downtime this weekend, and conversations on Web hosting have come up several times since. At Rogue Amoeba, we’ve gone through a several Web hosts over the years, and seen at least two die off in the process. As such, I thought I’d detail our own experiences with Web hosting, and provide a bit of advice.

I’m currently using DreamHost. I like their features, and the server is much faster than the one I had at Pair, but the recent downtime has been a problem. I wish I could simply pay DreamHost more to get higher reliability.

If money is no object, I recommend Rackspace. But they are much more expensive than Pair and Dreamhost. Still, if your livelihood revolves around your online presence it is probably worth it.
