Dreamhost, what a nightmare! Any other custom panels ?
I just did registered an account with dreamhost, which has been nothing but a nightmare. Quick story we registered on staturday the 26th of january and basically after 3 support tickets [while the 3rd one is escalated since more than 24 hours] we are still not activated and still pending despite the professional reaction from Samuel at dreamhost support.
Well so basically we would like to know what are the hosts that have a custom control panel? I know the one of dreamhost is really powerfull and you can do ... basically everything you want with it. Those I already know are:
- site5.com (derived from cPanel which I definetly don't like because of the file structure)
- mediatemple.com (?)
well a control panel which is not one of the "brandable" panels. A home made one. The one of dreamhost gives a lot of control, just for instance you can decide where exactly you want you domain to be. So it can ben in ~/ or ~/domains/<domain> or anywhere you'd like it to be. Gives also a total control on the mail files.
Mike, 3 support ticket to resolve this issue over one week, don't you think it is quite unacceptable? I mean, I have a project to start and I need to host the presentation page as soon as possible as some visibility will start soon with the company.
AFAIK WebFaction is the only control panel that makes it easy to mix and match multiple applications on a domain, so part of your site could be served by Rails and other parts by WordPress for instance.
If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend checking out their control panel demo, it's pretty impressive!
