MediaTemple was one of the worst hosts we tested, not only are their servers slow but they lack standard features that you should expect with any hosting provider (even bad ones). The support we received was highly incompetent and unable to resolve simple FTP issues that should not have happened in the first. Anyone misfortunate enough to host here, will have a hard time migrating to a more capable provider as they do not provide backups, file manager or reliable FTP. After researching MT we found that they are owned by Godaddy which explains why they have so many issues.
