So, I’m thinking about moving to a better hosting solution. I tried searching the forum and found 2 providers that you guys mostly talking about which are Media Temple and Bluehost.
What would you suggest between Media Temple and Bluehost? Or if you have any other choice, please suggest.Thank you

Ugh! I was too late! I’ve been a bit behind on getting around to all my regular sites throughout the day. Thanks for the help, you guys are awesome.
We provide 1TB of bandwidth per month. If you were to go over that, we do charge extra. We also have something called GPUs, with deals directly with CPU . You can check out more information on that here http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/269/Understanding+the+GPU+tool#gs . If customers go over their allotment of 2000 GPUs, they will incur a charge on the final months amount. We recently just raised the number from 1,000 to 2,000, and provide a good amount of reporting and warning to help customers become aware of it.
The (gs) Grid-Service holds up to 100 domains per account. You have the option of only hosting the domains, or using (mt) as a webhost and registrar. We provide more information on that here http://kb.mediatemple.net/questions/1824/Managing+Domains#gs
Thanks for thinking of joining! Feel free to contact us anytime, if you have any other questions.
I’m actually thinking of leaving media temple. They used to be great. I used to never have problems, but now it seems at least once a month my site is sluggish to offline. I had to switch to gmail because my email server couldn’t handle it on the gridserver.
BUT my biggest complaint is back in the day when I signed up you could download and upload to mediatemple as fast as your connection allow. Now it peaks out at 500KB/ sec. I want speed and performance and mediatemple is letting me down. With all their talk of the grid and the grid expanding to your needs why is it my site’s always a bit sluggish (were talking straight up HTML no server side code here)?I’d go elsewhere, but I’m at a bit of a loss as to where to go. The price isn’t the problem it’s the performance.
We’ve definitely been having some issues recently with performance, that our engineering team is working on. Fortunately, we think we’ve found the silver bullet that should calm down the performance, which started acting up in the beginning of August.
As for mail, we’ve been tracking issues that customers have been having recently. Even though we don’t have a ultimate fix yet, we are working on coming out with an answer soon. We know webmail is outdated and the performance needs to be better. Even though I can’t give a solid ETA to an answer, I can tell you it should be coming soon enough.
Finally, we’d love to check out those upload speeds. I’m not sure if you’ve already sent in a support request, but feel free to give us a call anytime. We’ll be more than happy to take a look at things for you.
Thanks guys, we’re definitely happy to be a new part of the community. I check out a few forums throughout the day, and it looks like themeforest has made my list. Thanks for the warm welcome, and definitely check us out on Twitter and Facebook for support, news, and special stuff.
