I’ve heard raves and howls about Dreamhost for web hosting, but my experience so far as been stellar.
I really like the one-click install / updates for WordPress; previously, the announcement of a new 0.01 update I might delay a few days, weeks to get around to backing up the database, de-activating plugins, backing up the web directory, downloading new source code, uploading…. while with one click that is all I really have to do. It Just Works (so far).
Just did it for the WP 2.1.3 update.
