Re: [wordpress-195] Suggestions for places to host a wordpress site? Seems like everyone likes it.  I use “Automatic WordPress Backup” and backup to Amazon S3.  I don’t believe they show compatibility through 3.5.1 but it works for me on many sites.

I still can’t believe that DreamHost can’t restore your files.  They have to be backing up their servers.  I would start shouting on Twitter and Facebook and ask for an escalation.

Page.ly is the other managed hosting that is brought up.  And I know there is a third but forget who they are.

I use a VPS, Knownhost, and love their support.  It’s a bit more expensive and you do want to be a little more technical.

Cheers,

Jeff

I am entertaining paying for this:

which does both.  Does anyone have experience with it?

Thanks!

Just to remind anyone using a self-hosted option,
make sure to back up both 1. your database, and
2. all your other content such as images.

This bears repeating:

1. Backup database,
2. Backup everything else.
