I have been using Mediatemple for a few years. It is an exceptional hosting service, the best I have ever used. I host a number of websites on the business grade DV service. DV is scalable, meaning resources can be increased as required. So as your sites grow and gain momentum, your existing server can easily be upgraded to handle it. It uses Plesk software which is great for server management and has benefits like easy WordPress installation and customer accounts. The only thing I can think of that would improve the service is better tools for handling domain names, but that is a minor gripe when balanced against the benefits. Of all the hosting platforms I have tried over the last decade, MT is by far the best.

I have used various web hosts and I personally like media temple because of the fast support. They usually respond within 12 hours which is good because all other web hosts that I have tried take like 24-48 hours. They have friendly support staff which they try to help solve your technical problems. The up-time is great; it hasn’t gone down for a few months now so keep up the good work! I totally recommend this web host for beginners as they have great friendly support staff.

We host with Mediatemple on their DV VPS. It is a great service and easily scalable so if our business keeps growing as it has been, we’ll be able to cope.
