Anyone using Media Temple's Grid-Service hosting? Never heard of them until now, but they look like a pretty good hosting company...

Argh, perfect timing! Just when I'm trying to dig about Media Temple too. Natekapi, seems there are lots of horror stories about GS. On contratry, seems their DV plans kickass! They are also pretty transparent, you can check their system status here: (mt) Media Temple - (mt) weblog System incidents.

Take a look and you will see GS got hit frequently..

I contacted MT sales to confirm about this and Tony got in touch with me. Here's what he said:.

Anybody got experience with MT? Did you track your uptime with tools such as pingdom or something like that? I'm going to sign up with their DV soon, any feedback is pretty much appreciated!..

Its overrated. I havent been on it, but almost put my WPMU thing and other database sites on it. Because the hype, marketing, and their website looks so awesome..

But a strong server (even shared, or Semi-dedicated) with another server doing mysql can kick it's ass. And a lot more reliably. Their site sounds like if you need more power it just scales automatically. It doesnt. It is just marketing bullshit unless they have significantly improved in the last 6 months..

I have heard they throw kickass parties though. If you are more into networking with the cool crowd. If you are in the Midwest and dont travel much for computer parties I would get something real...

Thanks for your input Drake. Actually I was asking about scability to sales dept. Here's what they said:.

What do you think?.

Keep the inputs coming guys before I decide to sign up to something (or if you have better suggestion than Media Temple I'm all ear)..

I initially thought they were shit, search WF for the posts, however having had a Dpvs with them for 4 months now I'm pretty happy..

The biggest issue I had was lack of additional ip addresses...they fixed that so I'm stick with them for some sites...

Their (gs) Grid-Service is worse (slow as fuck) than most shared hosting. I have tried it...

Comment #5

Damn....they make their Grid-Service sound so l33t. Guess I'll be sticking with Dreamhost, but keep the stories comin, I like to read about any issues people have had with Media Temple...

Comment #6

Dreamhost has it's share of problems too. In fact, if it weren't for ixwebhosting I would have to say dreamhost is the worst hosting I've ever personally used..

If you're looking for better, more reliable hosting, but still inexpensive then go with HostGator. Otherwise, I recommend a dedicated from

Comment #7

Thanks for the input guys.

I'm considering too now....

Comment #8

Damn....I actually like Dreamhost way more than HostGator. I had HostGator shut me down when I got dugg once, yet my stuff on Dreamhost has gotten dugg 3 or 4 times and was fine. I did have some problems with downtime over the past year and they screwed up my database once. But it's all good now...

Comment #9

Dreamhost is shit. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it. They really fucked over my debit card by charging 200 dollars during their little fuck up earlier this year...
