    Great review Jean! I think I am sticking with WP Engine for now, but great to know there are other options out there.

    One thing that’s a bit annoying is that all pages are cached by default, and there is not an easy way to prevent a page from being cached–such as a Contact Form page that has a Captcha image.

    Also there is no “Terminal” access–with GridServer hosting at MT, you can use Terminal to get in and make backups from the command line, or un-zip archives on the server, etc. Sad to see this isn’t included.

      Hey Brian,

      Appreciate the feedback. Keep an eye out for some changes coming up in the next few weeks.

    I have been debating moving to Media Temple recently… Jean, can’t you purchase the Pro CDN service that MediaTemple offers and add it to your WP hosting plan? I really wish this was included like WP Engine. Because that adds another $20 a month… or you could go with 3rd party. A CDN is a must for me.

      Hi Brian, it’s quite possible that something has changed since I posted this review with regards to CDNs. I’ll get in touch with someone from Media Temple to see what are the current options.

      Hi there Brian! Thanks for the interest in the product! I have good news for you, Cloudflare with Railgun (which can function as CDN) is available, FOR FREE, with our new Premium WordPress Hosting product. The only difference is that we don’t offer it at a push of a button like we do with the GRID. You can set it up yourself, or you can put it in a support request to have our team manually set it up for you.

      @Jean, also in regards to your issue in your article regarding MaxCDN through the W3 Total Cache plugin – It is true that we have disabled the plugin because it is a redundancy with our built-in caching, but I am told by our techs you should still be able to use MaxCDN separate from the plugin if you prefer to stick with that service.

      If you have any other questions, the best way to get immediate answers is to tweet at us: @MediaTempleHelp.

      Thanks again! :)

      -Drew
