I was shopping for a hosting provider to replace HostGator.com. I know someone who uses DreamHost.com so I decided to give them a try. The price seemed right and they offered a free trial. I signed up. After 2 hours trying to get a simple FTP connection the home directory I gave up. There were just too many limitations. Their service is all geared to an all inclusive package that includes domain registration and DNS. Their system is not designed for someone who just needs VPS hosting.
