Looking for a new host for – any suggestions?

Hi guys, if you’ve seen my posts on twitter, facebook you’ll know I’m looking for a new host for
You may have tried for a few hours to browse the site with nothing happening. Apologies again folks. This has occurred TOO MANY TIMES.
I am fed up of it. The resources are already set very high, yet it will go down no matter what.
So, as awesome as their tech support people have been (and they’re very friendly and helpful), I have to say goodbye to DreamHost as you have let me and my readers down too often. Must I strap my laptop to my arm and monitor every second of my site just so I can quickly attempt to force a reboot to revive the dead server?
If you have had experience of a good host, fairly reasonable prices, can handle max 2M views/month (we’re not there at all, but just as a buffer) then we’re happy to look into that. There’s also something else I’m hoping might work out host wise, but in case it doesn’t I’m looking into other hosts.
It would be a wonder if you’re reading this as that means, miraculously, it’s up again. Since I’ve been complaining on twitter, the site is still ridiculously intermittently unresponsive. I don’t know if they’re doing that on purpose.
Off to more lectures. Hope this gets to a few readers before they mangle it up again.
