what happend to dreamhost ???

www.dreamhost.com + sites that are hosted on dreamhost, including my own are dead :S

Didn't get a newsletter of expected downtime like usual, and its been quite some time they are down now. Usually 15 minutes max downtime and they are back up.

Can't find any info about it, anyone know ?

Yes, power outage. http://status.dreamhost.com/ says:
Serious electricity problems in the Los Angeles area have taken our entire network off-line.

The backup power for our data center initially failed, but is expected to be back up soon. Our technicians are waiting for the go ahead to start flipping switches. General power in the Los Angeles area is still out and we have no information about when it will be restored.
These folks have taken over RFD, so I'm done here.

Do they not have backup generators like most webhosting companies?

I think Dreamhost is pretty low budget.. they've had numerous downtime events over the year that I would have expected them to learn from.

That said, they still are a decent host. I would do business with them again (for the right price and that's not regular price).
Beans, beans, the magically fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you feel. So eat your beans at every meal.

First, I am not sure most webhosting companies have backup generators.
Second, if the most internet hubs are dead, only you staying on does not help.
