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.... More I would a lower price, but I guess you get what you pay for. Less

Blue Host is a journey and not a means to an end with web hosting html and word press. I am seeing the difference every day with html and css online.

Winner: Bluehost

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

BlueHost and Media Temple are both great companies, and they both excel at different areas, which made this comparison something of a challenge for our hosting experts. In the overall rankings, Media Temple got higher average scores than BlueHost, and they also have a greater number of higher level hosting options, with more powerful dedicated servers, to choose from. The support from Media Temple is more advanced and seems to have the ability to work on more complicated problems, which can be very important. In the end, we choose Media Temple as the winner for these reasons.
