(gs) is a cluster-based, modern hosting service powered by hundreds of servers working in tandem to power your websites, applications and email with unrivaled power, burstability and reliability.



I hosted my personal site for a year now (using Symphony). MT have a good - easy to use control panel, good documentation and good support. I am happy with this hosting company.

I’ve had several Symphony sites hosted on Media Temple. Performance isn’t always great, but usually good enough. Support varies from decent to excellent. There have certainly been hiccups over the years, but overall I’m still fairly pleased with (mt). Their control panel is superb.

I can’t fault MediaTemples support for Symphony, but their grid is not a stable enough platform for commercial sites. We’re currently reporting an 88% uptime over the past six months and have logged 50+ speed issues.

I host my own site and several small sites for friends on my {gs} plan, and so far so good, I’ve never had an issue. The admin panel is the best I’ve seen from any shared hosting provider.

What makes MediaTemple is their service. Or that’s what I found to be true. Unfortunately, the GridService doesn’t deliver in the area of performance. I found them to be very clunky and sluggish. I’ve recommended many people to them when the offered the SharedServers, but since the GridServers arrived… the idea was good, but it seems as though they over promised in performance, and instead are under-delivering.

I have worked with Media Temple quite a bit over the last 3 years, including at least 3 symphony based site. I usually recommend them to new clients because the UI for admin is a much better than most other hosts out there, and their Technical Contact role is great. Unfortunately performance is quite slow. Weather its just Flat HTML or something like Symphony/Drupal does seem to matter. This is why I only give them 3 Stars. If they could bring their performance up to snuff, I would definitely give them 5 Stars. Until then I can only give them 3.

ok, I’ve got some more data from other sites of mine running on mediatemple Obviously, good admin panel, but… performance is slowly.

I’ve been getting database errors - Out of memory (Needed 2091040 bytes) - over the past couple of weeks. I guess there is just not enough resources on the shared server. I am definitely disappointed in MT and will probably switch to another host.
