For a very long time I was a happy customer with hostgator. Recently I faced couple of downtime with the reseller hosting package. For some reason due to another account the apache kept dieing without notice. So I decided to move my blog to cloud based hosting. Couple of months back my colleague Shuja had suggested me about Media Temple. Now I thought it was the right time to move.
I subscribed for Grid Service hosting which is for 20$ monthly. After moving my blog I did a load test and it seems to be pretty stable.
The good thing about this hosting is for 20$ you get fixed 1000 hours of GPU. And based on load and usage it gets consumed. Suppose if you see a sudden spike in the traffic your website will be scaled automatically. If you cross 1000 hours it charges 10 cents per hour. If anyone is looking for scaling your website I suggested you do a test drive with media temple.
