The mystery behind the high price tag?

Labels: , , ,

I was reading that web hosting page again and stopped to look at the more higher end we host options. I wondered as most of the options looked and sounded the same, 'why is this place so much higher that the others? Do they offer extras? Do they give such awesome service to warrant that price hike?'

These thoughts were flowing through my mind when I looked at Media Temple web hosting. At $20 a month, I wondered if they were just all hype and wasted money. I went to my web hosting review page again but only saw web hosting reviews about other places by not Media Temple.

I wondered why that was. Are they a new start up? I expect usually a few user reviews by now, it isn't hard to let your voice be heard as for or against a place. But Media Temple had no reviews to vouch or discredit them. Hmm. I even went directly to Media Temple's page but found nothing to justify the silence, nor the price tag on what they offer towards webhosting. Their site looks pro and all, but between the price tag and the mum word on the street, I'm kind of leery jumping into the temple with these guys.

Hi there!
(mt) Media Temple is definitely not a start up. The company has been providing hosting services since 1998, and some of our clients include big time companies, such as Starbucks, ABC, Sony & more. That being said, we also host thousands of small sites and blogs.

There are several hosting review web sites and blog posts that have feedback from (mt) users, but it's always important to keep in mind that everyone's experience will vary. This is due to a few things, including a) type of site & configuration, b) previous large scale incidents that were addressed & remedied, c) time frame of being on a hosting product between it's infancy & later improvements, etc etc.

We offer a 30 day money back guarantee, so it may be best to give it a shot & decide if it's for you within that time frame. We also have 24/7 support via many channels, including phones, support requests, Twitter, Skype & Support Chat. If you ever have any questions about our service, feel free to contact us by calling or chatting with sales, or using the Contact Us form here: http://mediatemple.net/company/contact.php

Sorry for the late reply; my blog filtered your reply as spam XD

Ah! So you guys ARE alive! Seems wherever review sites I've searched the reviewers seem to not know of you, putting out a weird 'who are these guys' vibe. It was that lack of not being spoken about at all that was odd.

Mind you I don't take complete stock in what reviewers say, but I do like seeing what regular joe (or rather Joanette's) out their have said about a place. Though the stuff you listed in my response also gives me a better understanding of where that $20 is going!
