Anyone happy with your commercial MediaWiki Web host?


Dreamhost.com virtual hosting, $7.95/month, where I host my MediaWiki 
has frequent sluggish spells. I suspect the MySQL server is bogged down 
by too many other virtual host customers (my wiki only gets a few hits 
a minute, itself) and the overextended MySQL server is causing the wiki 
to serve pages in 2-8 second instead of the 1-2 seconds that is 
acceptable to normal website visitors. Normal people such as I'd like 
Wikigogy to serve just wont wait more than 2 seconds to view a page. So 
I need to find a faster MedaiWiki hosting solution. The slow down is on 
again off again -- site is fine for a day or more and then everything 
slows down again. It just wont do for my project.

I'd love to hear from anyone who is using a commercial full MedaiWiki 
Web host, on a virtual Web hosting account or otherwise, and is happy 
with it.
