Media Temple Offering Grid Shared Hosting – $20 for 100GB and 100 Sites

Media Temple is offering a new shared hosting service called Grid Server that costs $20/month. For this, you get 100GB of storage, 1 TB of data transfer and up to 100 individual sites.

In addition, the service will grow along with you since you are not hosted on a single machine. Instead, your sites are located on a grid of hundreds of clustered servers that can handle traffic spikes, performance problems, and all other sorts of headaches we experience with today’s shared hosting packages.

Like Google did with Gmail, Media Temple has created a new paradigm in shared hosting. Look for others to follow.

Sorry to steal mediatemple’s thunder. [I used them on a client’s site a few years back] but 1and1’s shared hosting plans just blow them out the water. Service comparable to the mediatemple plan you outlined is only $3.49 … http://order.1and1.com/xml/order/HostingOverview;jsessionid=1220E221D5CFFB2D32F46404061B452F.TC60b?__frame=_top&__lf=Order-Tariff I will say that it’s not grid computing and probably doesn’t offer 100 sites on the plan but its pretty darn close eh?
