Dreamhost blows. What host are you using? Hopefully not Dreamhost. Dreamhost is cringe. AWS introduces some hiccups but it will only run you like 5$ CAD / month. GoDaddy is alright. /g/ has a list of reputable offshore VPS providers. Dreamhost sucks. If you use Dreamhost, don't even mention, because then anyone can rat your site up fierce.
Not on dreamhost. We used to be hosted on whatever shit was cheapest on low end box, but I learned from that mistake. Pay a good premium, but it's been stable for years, so I'll take it.
Where would us lost souls be without you? I can help mod if you want.
