Great support
I accidentally deleted my entire website (my fault), and my backups weren't working properly, but they managed to provide a backup and support within ...
record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons: a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting.

Superb Support, Fast and Reliable
We use MediaTemple for hosting a number of client sites and our own and have found them one of the best providers to work with. Their support staff is...
diligent and knowledgeable; their products are modern, fast, and flexible. I would a lower price, but I guess you get what you pay for.

No Service only Lies
Over the last year, the service from Arvixe has been horrendous. There have been server outages that have lasted from hours to almost a week. Technica...
l Support staff is incompetent. Additionally, they do not read the messages that one sends in chat. As for generating a trouble ticket, I generated a trouble ticket on Dec. 30, 2022 at 8:30am Central Time. They did not respond until January 3, 2023 at 9:05am stating there was no problem. Well. NO SH*T, Sherlock. The server reappeared sometime after 21:00 on Saturday, December 31, 2022. Even though the server shared057.arvixe.com died sometime on December 29. There are no reports that anything was wrong with the server. Plus, Arvixe raises their rates every year once you are stupid enough to purchase a service. Things were good in 2015, yet the service and support has rapidly declined since 2019. At one time, I hosted 10 domains on Arvixe. Because of poor service I moved them to another hosting service. Will move the last three this month.

absolute garbage
I bought into MT in June 2020 when I was starting a new business because another project I had worked on for years had used their hosting and things s...
eemed good, if a bit slow. I had some issues with the speed of shared hosting as my site grew, so I upgraded in December 2021 and then again in September 2022, and they absolutely screwed up the upgrades both times, causing all sorts of DNS issues and confusion for my clients. Now that they're transitioning to being a GoDaddy property, support has been practically nonexistent. One of the worst decisions I've ever made was to host my site with MediaTemple.
