Okay for Rails, Great for other stuff
Reviewer: Hugh Bien, 15 March 2007
I wouldn't put a production app on a shared server (especially Dreamhost). FastCGI processes just seem to die randomly. If your app uses page caching, it might be okay.

But if you're looking for a SVN/static server, DreamHost is dirt cheap and offers loads of storage and bandwidth.
Disappointing Support
Reviewer: AirBoss, 02 March 2007
I am currently having strange configuration problems while trying to get my first Rails app deployed. It has been more than 36 hours since I filed a trouble ticket with no response whatsoever.

I understand that you get what you pay for, so at about $10/month I guess I shouldn't expect much. However, since I must support clients, it makes it difficult to stay with a provider who cannot respond more quickly.
Every developer needs a DH account
Reviewer: Danger, 01 February 2007
Dreamhost is not particularly fast and there are the very occasional HTTP 500 errors. That's the bad. But every Rails developer should have an account with them for the following reasons:

They're dirt cheap.
They provide ludicrous storage and bandwidth.
It's a great testing ground for all your apps before you want to pay for better hosting.

Before you signup: Google around for a DreamHost code that gives you $97 off. That'll make a two-year plan come out to less than $100.
