It seems I may have spoke too soon. Although I experienced some hosting difficulties initially at Mediatemple.net, but since then it has been smooth sailing. My client’s site is still receiving thousands of hits per day as of now, but Media Temple is serving it up lightning fast and without any complaints. It seems their grid-server plan does live up to their promise of surviving traffic surges. One word of advice, be very careful with your mediatemple GPU usage. A bad script can rack up GPU very quickly, on the first day my client’s site on my account used up a total of 37 GPU, which would have put me over the limit if I used that much every day. I find that this was a good opportunity to optimize my code as the mediatemple GPU report will tell me which files are costing the GPUs. After optimizing my wordpress plugin codes, now I am only using about 1.7 GPU per day! what a difference. It made me realize many inefficiencies in various wordpress plugin codes and my own codes. Which was really nice. I am liking Mediatemple more and more every day. (although I still love DreamHost).
