Hundreds of servers are better than one.

Your site shouldn’t go down — or slow down — just because it gets popular. Or just because some resource-hogging site happens to be on the same server box. We built the Grid hosting platform better, with hundreds of clustered servers sharing resources to easily handle “noisy neighbors” and traffic spikes.

  • Host up to 100 websites
  • 1TB monthly bandwidth
  • SSD database storage
  • 100 GB storage

The Grid now comes with SSDs

The Grid’s MySQL SmartPool servers are now equipped with blazing-fast SSDs. Which means you’ll never have to worry about database bottlenecks slowing down your site.

SSDs load your sites up to 50% faster.

What people are saying about Media Temple


Built to be better

When we designed the Grid to be one of the web’s first public cloud hosting platforms, we knew it had to be powerful. Multiple servers handle every site, so the Grid has redundancy built in. That means you’ll never have to fight for the resources of a single server.

But we didn’t stop there. Every bit of the Grid’s hardware, software, and architecture was carefully designed for speed and reliability.

New, improved, and faster than ever

Faster loading websites. The latest server technologies, like PHP 5.5 and FastCGI, make your website pages load up to 6x faster. Simpler CloudFlare controls. Now you can manage CloudFlare with Railgun—a free service that makes your sites faster and more secure—from right inside the Account Center. A better backup plan. Our highly trained CloudTech engineers can now take care of Grid backups and recovery for you, so you know your data is secure.

24/7, no-excuses support

We pride ourselves on being the world’s most accessible web hosting company. Your Grid hosting service comes with award-winning 24/7/365 support by chat, Twitter, and phone. Real, live engineers are in our L.A. office around the clock, waiting to solve your problems.

Reddit™-ready bandwidth

No site should be penalized just for getting popular. If you find yourself in the spotlight — like hitting the front page of Reddit, or blowing up on Twitter — your web host should be able to keep up. The Grid’s bandwidth scales with your traffic. So you can grow without worrying about getting shut down.

One-click app installs

Quickly and easily deploy applications like WordPress, Drupal, and ZenCart—just by pointing and clicking. Blogging, selling stuff, and managing your site content has never been easier.

Easy-to-use Account Center

Manage email users. Easily add and manage email addresses across all your domains. Instantly install apps. Install WordPress, Drupal, Zencart and more, with the click of a mouse. Manage databases. Quickly add, reboot, repair, and manage MySQL database permissions. Add domains. Add new domain names to your account the moment inspiration strikes.

Advanced security and protection

The Grid includes the CloudFlare content delivery network with Railgun, which can help protect you against hackers, botnets, and phishing scams. It also comes with Cloudmark’s spam detection technology built right in, and the Grid support team blocks would-be attackers at the gate by monitoring and patching potential vulnerabilities. We also offer premium CloudTech Security services for your most important sites.

Business-class email for everyone

Your Grid hosting plan supports up to 1,000 separate email addresses across all your domains. Access your messages, contacts, and calendars anywhere through a clean, simple browser interface. Or use your favorite desktop programs or mobile devices, thanks to full IMAP support.

Dedicated MySQL resources

The Grid platform is built on our own SSD-based MySQL SmartPool system, which guarantees plenty of database resources to every Grid service. Sudden traffic spikes trigger an automatic boost in resources to keep your site online. Need even more performance from your database? Just add a dedicated MySQL Container to your Grid account for a low, flat fee each month.

CloudTech priority care

Every Grid service comes with (mt)’s famous 24/7 live support. If you need help that’s above and beyond, turn to CloudTech Premium Support. CloudTech On-Demand for Grid is a menu of one-time services, available just when you need them. Now you can have certified (mt) engineers analyzing your code, installing your web apps, and more, to get your site running at its best.
