Mediatemple.net GridService or Dreamhost.com?

Hey everyone, I’m trying to get a good webhoster for mainly drupal CMS-es (many drupal installations) I’ve heard some bad news from both providers but they are mainly out dated. Is anyone currently using mediatempe or dreamhost service? Which one do you recommend? Why do you recommend it? Is it fast enough? How’s the uptime? Thank you very much!

Chosen Answer:

Personally I use dreamhost. The uptime is good enough for the price though I won’t deny there hasn’t been a few times it has gone down. Thankfully these have been pretty quickly resolved and dreamhost are good at keeping you updated on what the problems are at dreamhoststatus.com.

Drupal works fine though they don’t offer it as an automatic installation. You are also able to install other software you may need such as custom php installations, cgi etc.

There is also an active use forum where you can usually get help pretty quickly on any problems.

I can’t offer anything on the others you mention as I have no experience of them.
