Media Temple is an ambitious hosting provider who strives to improve and evolve with its innovative solutions, although not advanced enough, for enterprise and business clients. Rather, both features and performance are more appealing to beginners.

There is no doubt that Media Temple ensures a top-notch performance that is beyond imagination. However, exaggerated installations might slow down your server although a quick customer support and dozens of features can entice anyone.


The Media Temple DV package offers three plans to the potential clients, which differ in terms of bandwidth, storage, and RAM. Rest, everything remains unchanged, including the applications, control panel, and instant root access.

Control Panels

The Plesk 11 control panel is intuitive and user-friendly to use. All those who have worked with cPanel will truly appreciate this one. After all, it successfully overcomes some of the cPanel drawbacks, which you can only judge once you start using it. Moreover, direct shortcuts to the common links tend to improve productivity.

You can update MySQL 5.5 and PHP 5.4 whenever a new version becomes available. A special note of credit goes to the SmartPool feature in MySQL 5.5, which is specifically designed to boost traffic. You can even gain a better control with Grid Container.

Talking about the data centers, they are proprietary and designed as per the Tier 4 standards, the ultimate specification set in the industry regarding security, cooling, and power. The company-owned status implies no need for third-party services at the time of an upgrade.


Moreover, Media Temple relies on Intel Xeon computers, which run on DDR3 RAM. From a technical point of view, they encompass the latest innovation in the hardware industry. Besides, the SAS disks used for RAID 10 storage are extremely fast too.

It seems that all these features were not enough that the provider also made a room for 200 applications that you can install with just a click. Experienced users might be familiar with manual installations, but automatic installation can save a lot of time. Some of the most common apps that you can install include ZenCart, WordPress, and Drupal.

Further, the TrueSite multi-domain technology allows customers to assign each domain to a particular FTP user who gets an e-mail address for a better control. Resellers can also effectively use the virtual private servers on offer.


Media Temple has managed to introduce a versatile set of packages for beginner and enterprise businesses at an affordable cost.
