My Digg journey crashed the shared hosting account that Legal Andrew was using. I had been with Total Choice Hosting for years, and they’ve done a fine job. But the $4 account I had just can’t handle a traffic surge.
About an hour ago, I setup an account with (mt) Media Temple. It’s their (gs) Grid-Service hosting, which is designed to automagically scale when traffic surges. For $20 per month (actually, $17 with code “surfstation”), I now have 100 GB of space and up to 100 domains.
Media Temple has received some mixed reviews around the blogosphere. But I decided to take a leap. I’ve talked to people who have nothing but positive things to say and some people who are itching to leave for a better host. But Media Temple has a money back guarantee. And they have 24/7 phone tech support. I figured that I can take a chance. Hopefully their hosting will live up to the hype.
Please notify me of any problems. I’ll keep a close eye on things, but you guys catch things that I miss.
