I used them I think three years ago and I hated every minute of it. I do however understand that my experience with them was not in line with their typical service. I hear good things about them but with what happened to me, I’m hesitant to give them another shot. A friend has been using them since then and has been very satisfied.

I use them. I think they are pretty good. Basically, for personal stuff or a non-commercial blog I’d have no problem recommending them. I have experienced some downtime and mail unavailability, but nothing for too long or that inconvenienced me too bad. However, I also have a pretty big Rails site that was completely Bushed by Dreamhost upgrading their Rails install without telling anyone. For a Rails install, I’d look elsewhere.

The best thing I like about DreamHost is that they seem to have a pretty good support for Python.

I have used Dreamhost for years; they do a good job for amateur work and their rewards program makes their service very affordable. I have never had any trouble with downtime or anything else. The staff has helped me on a number of occasions. Overall, it’s a very good service.

personally I hated their control panel for hosted webspace. I found 1and1 to be less expensive and has a great control panel. If you decide to go with them, let me know and Ill give you a discount link

Do they have good support for Python and CGI?
