Superb Support, Fast and Reliable
Ben Hale,

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

Horrible support

Mediatemple is expensive, slow and has literally no support at all.
Their replies are always cryptic and don't resolve problems.
I've been with them for over 10 years - but what happened recently finally made me switch. I h... More osted multiple sites with them and one of them got a malware attack. The consequence: all the sites have disappeared. I reach out to them by mail, chat and phone - no answer for 48 hours. I also asked for priority data recovery - their answer: we don't have any backups, but then we won't make you pay the 79USD backup restoration fee.
Over the years I've had so many bad experiences, on all levels, with them and I'm so happy I finally have a new reliable provider.

They're extremely deceptive in their pricing

The whole "regular price" thing means that's how much they'll charge you once you renew. It doesn't say it explicitly, which is really shady. I wouldn't trust them at all passed that point.
