    Untrue. Your credit rating is only affected if you default on the amount, or go to court over it.

    I agree to some extent, and paying the fees that the banks charged for their customers becoming overdrawn is sensible too. But as soon as you go into the red with your bank your credit rating is permanently affected. I'm pretty sure DreamHost cannot compensate for that

    I about soiled my pants when I got an email saying I owed over $500.00 for a web hosting bill. I was thinking wow my website got popular over night.

    I don't think less of DreamHost anymore because they are honestly one of the best hosts out there, Accidents happen and they worked really hard to refund out money and it was an success. So don't hold a grudge against them for a human error. Nothing is perfect.

    A billing software issues combined with human error = a 7.5 million dollar mistake where Dreamhost erroneously billed hundreds of dollars against client credit and debit cards.

    Dreamhost said they'd credit the overdraft charges which is nice but you may want ot check your accounts before your rent check bounces.
