media temple.. contd.

Hmm..

Well now that I ve been actually looking upto web hosting services, one of the most crucial things (after service that is) is cost.

Features on MT

  • 100 GBs of premium storage
  • 1 TB of short-path bandwidth
  • Host up to 100 individual sites
  • 1000 email accounts
  • 64 MB Ruby/Mongrel container
  • This and more starts at $20 a month which is equivalent to about Rs.9500 INR p.a. at current conversion rates

    Right now MT is also offering a gift card scheme where you get an year of hosting for USD$95 . Its a limited time offer though.

    Coming to the Indian counterparts. The company that am dealing with is http://www.internetworldwide.org/

    Well after the initial not so nice words about them, I ve to comment on one thing. They do listen to the complaints and try to rectify them in a time period that at least by Indian standards can be called fast enough. Though their servers (at least the one am dealing with) aren’t all that properly configured. A simple phpinfo() file gave me an internal server error.

    But coming to the initial topic of the post, the cost. Hmm.. here they are much cheaper though the services provided are also lesser.
