    I know they are remaining independent, but I can't help my distaste for all things GoDaddy. Will be moving off of mediatemple shortly.

      Same, but I have too many domains and dependancies to move providers. Let's see if we get skantily clad women in our emails...

    See, I don't think anyone is worried about the quality of MediaTemple deteriorating or anything of the sort. They have been great and I'm sure they will continue to be. The problem is that they have now been acquired by one of the sleaziest companies on the web. A company that seemingly has done everything in its power to alienate itself from the demographic that MediaTemple managed to attract, and just like that, they now own all of us.

    I'll be moving providers shortly. It is a shame. I wish all the best to the people at MediaTemple though, it can't be an easy time heh.

      I think that's my problem with it -- I'm not worried at all about their service getting worse. Just the opposite! I just don't want to feel complicit in all the terrible marketing and service that GoDaddy has been responsible for. I know they're trying to be a better company, but I can't help feeling that this makes Media Temple look worse to their audience.

    I don't know, I love MediaTemple and I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they won't ( at least immediately) become as terrible as GoDaddy. Plenty of companies are owned by other companies and it doesn't always affect their operations and policies.

      While I tend to agree -- the mass exodus of employees (including senior leadership) makes me less hopeful for MT to remain independent.

    Seems like even more reason to start doing more github + s3 + cdn combinations.

    Thanks for the links guys, I've never heard of Digital Ocean, and it looks like I'd get more bang for my buck over there. I'll wait until ATP or The Talk Show gets sponsored by Hover again to buy new domain names too.

    Although I share the same distaste for GoDaddy as most of you, I think this was a pretty strategic move on GD's new CEO's part to help shed their old reputation. It's going to be interesting to see how MT influences them.

    Anyone have recommendations for alternative hosting companies? Would really like to move off MT following today's announcement.
