Moved to Dreamhost

I have changed hosts from 1and1.com to Dreamhost. I was using the free professional preview package from 1and1, but I think it was going to expire soon. Plus, there was a pretty good Dreamhost code: ‘DREAM77’ to save $77 off a yearly plan.

I had to change my nameservers with my domain registrar (GoDaddy). Took a while for updated NS and MX records to propagate, but they seem OK now.
Dreamhost has some nice 1 click installs. One of which is the WordPress 2.0 install. More on that later…

Full disclosure: Yes, my links to Dreamhost are referral links. Dreamhost Dreamhost Dreamhost ;-P
