I’m constantly impressed with (mt) Media Temple’s customer service and their rapid response to any support requests. This is the first thing I say whenever I’m asked about my web host. But the fact that my sites’ uptime is so high and that I receive the kind of bandwidth and space usually associated with dedicated servers — at a fraction of the cost — is the real reason I never hesitate to recommend (mt) Media Temple. Plus, their participation with the web design community and their fantastic parties really sets them a cut above other hosts. — Elliot Jay Stocks
