[joomla] GoDaddy for Joomla hosting?

i've been using dreamhost for years for small projects and testing  
large sites near-line.  they allow access to everything and have a  
pretty good extensive panel but i would stay away from the one-click  
installs except for initial installation because the upgrades just  
overwrite your tree which makes no sense for joomla.  what i like  
about them is the that the simple $5.95 per month account has  
unlimited domains and subdomains, mysql databases, users and emails,  
ssh etc... which means i can work on anything and everything at once  
in one account and allow friends and family to share in my hosting  
plan with their own users.

they also have a good affiliate program so if you decide to use them  
sign up with my link and i'll get some credits for my hosting and  
domain renewals.

here is the affiliate link so i get credit:
http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?85196

i have many friends who have switched from godaddy to dreamhost  
because they hit a wall really fast in their discounted plans.  hope  
you find one that works for you.
