Did you miss my first post about this series of webhosting? If you do, I encourage you to read my first article about “The Pros and Cons of Webhosting: Bluehost”.
Like I said, this will be a series of set articles intended for those who are looking for a webhosting solution. I hope you can make your decision based on these articles. I just started out with Bluehost and now we will talk about Media Temple.
Media Temple has been my home ever since I left Bluehost.
I have known Media Temple or (mt) long time ago. Those days were the start of my blogging days. For a price of $20 a month, I said to myself I can’t afford it. $20 is just too much for me specially I’m just starting to blog and I don’t know where will this blogging thing will lead me. But 1 and half years later, I’m now hosted here in mt and paying $100 a month. Crazy isn’t?
So why did I chose to pay $100 a month as compared to those who are paying $20 a month? Let’s first compare what package do they have.
I just upgraded my MT DV base server to have an additional 256 MB of RAM, this upgrade will give me a 512 MB of dedicated memory. That cost’s me $77 in total and a recurring monthly charge of $40 a month + hosting fee. All in all, it’s gonna be a $82 hosting cost for my sites per month, whew!
I thought I won’t be needing an upgrade. After installing APC, I was able to get rid of my memory problems for probably about a week. Then came yesterday, the site stalls again and gave me numerous memory failures.
