I am looking for a web host for WordPress demo, I have noticed from previous topics on the forum that MediaTemple is popular among authors here. Is it really a good host? Can you please tell your experience about it?
I have read in some of the old thread here that Media Temple will make you upgrade your package (over $20/month), is it so? Isn’t their $20 package enough ?
I truly understand guys, but I just want to keep it low profile. (Personal Reasons) I’ve got some great candidates until now, lovely work they’ve had, big names on their folio and it seems to be going really well!
So much awesomeness must be overflowing from your work that you already got multiple great, big names candidates without having any portfolio.
If you have already got such offers, why you are wasting your time here, start working already
I just wanted to say that your reasons for 1 star do not look good to me.
1 star – doesn’t work/no support/author vanished/no updates
When an author submits a theme, reviewers carefully check it. They don’t even approve if there is even a single PHP Notice (yes, a notice, not a warning). They do not approve a WordPress theme if it has any warning from the WordPress standard checking plugins (so there should not be such thing that the theme does not work. Sometimes a user is unable to figure out and he concludes that the theme does not work.
2. No support: When you purchase the theme you agree that you are buying it as it is. Support is totally optional.
3. Author Vanished: Did you make any contract that he will be forever there?
4. No updates: You buy an item as it is. No promises for tomorrow. Are you paying $40 and hoping that the author will give you free updates for the WordPress version being released in 2030?
Just my 0.02€.
