If any business aims to acquire broad exposure to the public at large, this is where web designers step in. So, let’s say you get a great-looking website up and running for some fine people that have only just started out. Chances are that they’ll start to receive more and more attention. Well, that is the whole purpose, after all.
And when their reputation skyrockets, one of two things can happen: either the website continues to build up momentum, or its sudden popularity becomes its undoing. What you need to do is make sure that the website stays online through any inflow of visitors, and you can do that from the very beginning, by choosing a Grid type shared web hosting from Media Temple.
The Media Temple Grid plan includes 100 GBs of premium storage, 1 TB of short-path bandwidth, 100 unique sites/alternate domains, 2,000 GPUs, 100 databases, and 1,000 email addresses. I’d say it’s a great plan for the harboring of most types of websites, be them personal websites, portfolios, or blogs. Of course, this may not be the first time you hear about Media Temple. Actually, their passion for design and perpetual support are notorious for most designers and web designers. Besides, they host such giant brands as Adobe, Sony, or Obey.
But let’s take a closer look at their Grid service. First of all, protection from hackers, spam, or other dark forces on the internet, is guaranteed by a Media Temple team of security engineers, and an included partnership with CloudFlare with Railgun, and Cloudmark. They’re always on the lookout for any new potential threats and constantly provide security updates to make sure that your websites are defended.
The AccountCenter is exceptionally easy to handle, a general control panel which you can even access via iPhone. That is the place where you monitor billing reports, add new domain names, manage databases, install applications, and edit email addresses across all domains. Moreover, the uControl panel allows for you clients to change email passwords or manage spam settings, so you don’t have to. The Grid is particularly optimized for WordPress, but you can install applications like DruPal or Zen Cart really fast, through 1 Click Installation. And then, all sorts of other applications are available for easy installation, such as Expression Engine, and many others.
Lastly, if you need help with anything, you’re covered. Consider the Media Temple Grid’s impeccable hosting support for customers, where you can get assistance at any time of day or night, by chat, Twitter, or phone. Apart from the included assistance services, CloudTech Premium Support for the Grid offers On-Demand site migration from other hosts, site tuning, site analysis, backup and recovery, application installations, and other IT services.
Getting started with the Grid Plan costs $20-a-month and your money is returned at any time if you’re not satisfied with Media Temple. A word of advice for those accustomed to massive traffic: careful with overstepping the closely observed bandwidth limit, because you pay-as-you-go an extra $0.15 per GB.
