I changed the hosting provider on my main blog from Dreamhost to a SSD-backed VPS from DigitalOcean. It was really a no-brainer, Dreamhost was taking upwards of 14 seconds just to serve a page and my website could easily take 30 seconds to load the full homepage (sometimes it wouldn’t load at all!).
DigitalOcean has been a dream to work with, even coming with a ready-to-go Wordpress image for use on Ubuntu. The only hiccup in the entire move was my choice to use VaultPress to restore my site to the new server (turns out VaultPress breaks down if you change the MySQL host during the move).
It’s only been a few days; but, I’m feeling good about DigitalOcean, hopefully I can stay with them for the long-haul.
