Our Grid Is Your Grid

Call it shared hosting, call it cloud hosting, or just call it Grid — a Media Temple solution built with web professionals in mind.

With Grid, flexibility is the name of the game: Build sites the way you want, manage them easily, and have confidence they’ll run smoothly when the hordes come running. In short, you get premium hosting capabilities for a fraction of the typical cost.

Built To Survive

When your site gets attention, it shouldn’t grind to a halt: That’s when you need it most. Grid puts a massive, shared cluster of hefty hardware and finely-tuned architecture behind your sites instead of limiting them to a single server. It all means that when a campaign (or Reddit) strikes, you don’t strike out.

Supported By Experts

Ask our customers why they choose Media Temple, and you’ll hear about our stellar end-to-end service and support. Our U.S.-based support team is here 24/7/365 — by chat, Twitter, phone, or support request — to answer all your hosting-related questions and to help keep your sites up and running.

Go Further With Grid


All SSD Storage

We’ve got solid-state technology at every turn, so your data and databases perform faster and more reliably than with a clockwork of moving HDD parts.

Smooth Scaling

When our tools detect bursts of activity on your site, your database automatically shifts to an independent container that handles the load smoothly.


DDoS & intrusion protection

Your sites stay safe from botnets and hackers thanks to around-the-clock security monitoring plus protection from denial-of-service attacks and intrusion.

30-day file backup & restore

Don’t let a little problem become the end of the world. Easy, automatic backup and restore options ensure any mistakes are low stakes.


Managed app catalog

Build bolder with one-click installs of over 20 apps including WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla plus popular open-source options for e-commerce, cloud storage, and more.

Control Panel

Server admin gets simpler with our custom-built control panel: Modern, streamlined, and designed from the ground up with real people in mind.

Power Up Your Grid

Pro and Elite plans take Grid to the next level with sophisticated upgrades along with additional storage and bandwidth.


Global CDN

Grid Pro & Elite plans include TrueSpeed CDN from SiteLock, which uses intelligent caching, content optimization, and a global network of secure data centers to make your sites load faster than ever, no matter where your visitors are connecting from.


Advanced Security

Grid Pro & Elite plans include Media Temple Security — a powerful platform for monitoring and cleaning your sites, powered by Sucuri’s acclaimed expertise. Grid Elite also comes with Sucuri’s web application firewall for an extra layer of security against app vulnerabilities.


Private MySQL Container

Sites running e-commerce and other demanding applications benefit from the added reliability and performance of the Grid Elite plan. A non-shared single instance of MySQL Server isolates critical resources, giving you a boost while still delivering the cost savings of a shared solution.
