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
Great Support and Price

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less
