    Just reading over dreamhost's newsletter and they have a Wordpress Robot who creates wordpress on the run. Very handy if you want to launch a bunch of blogs.

    Wow, that's really fantastic! Maybe that's why the name of that robot on cPanels is Fantastico... ;)

    Dreamhost doesn't have cPanel, it has some shitty panel of their own. That's why I switched to HG.

    Ugh wrong. I've been using Dreamhost for about 5 years and their "One Click Installs" have had Wordpres, Joomla, and a dozen other installs...for many years now.

    and fwiw I think their admin panel is second to none.

    If you are trying to make some good money online and send everyday more than 20-30k traffic dreamhost is not good to use. They have banned 2 of my accounts just for resource overusage.

    Wouldn't recommend dreamhost because of some fancy function.
    They are limiting php. So some sexy parts of it wont work on there. Also your required to create custom php.ini if you wish to generate something more complex .
