When you have decided to move to ‘Private Server’, there are some important factors you should care about. Give these things a thought.
- How much downtime you will be experiencing?

- What if anything breaks?
- Have you taken back up of databases and website scripts?
- Have you disabled some specific plugins which could cause problem later on when you are there?
If you are a Dreamhost Webhost user and at shared server environment then it might be confusing for you to decide when you should move to Dreamhost PS. You need to know the particular indications by your website or blog when you should realize that it is time. Even then you can see if you can do anything with your files, scripts and data to minimize some resources and stay at shared server environment. Its worth it to save every single buck while you can. In my opinion when there is no other way then you should move to Private Server, doesn’t matter at what server you currently are. You can panic fairly earlier and decide to move to Private Server while you could save some money yet. Private Server costs a bit more. It has benefits, but you should know your need. Let me point out indications which show need to move to Private Server and how to check that you can do anything to stay put just yet or there is no other way but to upgrade your hosting account.
