Rose,

Managed WP hosting:
- I have had good experiences with zippykid.com
- Have heard good reports from others using wpengine and page.ly

Regular shared hosting:
- Have had good experiences with arvixe and rochen
- I steer people away from DreamHost (as you have discovered)

Either way, backups are essential
- VaultPress is the best if you can afford it
- BackupBuddy is a great option, as well
- BackWPup is a good free plugin, but requires more configuration and restores aren't as automatic as the previous 2
- Backups provided by your host may or may not be adequate--test them before you decide to forgo your own backup solution

I'm sorry to hear this has happened to you.
