I have hosting with dreamhost PS (private server). I have 1gb of ram on my server. Now, if I open up say 20-30 tabs in my browser and keep clicking "refresh all tabs". Then it brings my site down. My site is a pretty popular site and I'm shocked that I can do this so easily. What do you suggest I do to fix this?

I think that PS is actually a virtual server. Likely Virtuozzo powered. They have strict limits on RAM usage. You may need to considered a dedicated server or a larger virtual private server with root level access to you can monitor and tweak the settings.

Are you sure the site is down and it is not simply some AntiDOS measures that kick in - only blocking request from your IP? Some CMS and shopping carts have built in bandwith control. They count the number of requests from one IP in a given period of time, and when the limit is exceeded they return a 503.
