Dreamhost was getting really slow lately (the server was under a load of 11–12 constantly). So I decided to get a my own VPS (Virtual Private Server) again. I chose Slicehost because I’ve been hearing good things about them and because they’re cheap ($20/month). I got 256mb RAM and 10G of space, and because it’s a VPS you get root access (mine is running Ubuntu Gutsy Server). I was considering getting a slice with 512MB ram so that I could run production WebDSL sites (you need at least 512mb of ram for JBoss to run), but decided that I would wait with that for a while, I can upgrade later anyway.
Hope you’re enjoying the site’s improved speed!
