The news about GoDaddy acquiring Media Temple is filling my social feeds today. Not surprising since it’s hard to be a developer or digital consultant and not have at least one client on Media Temple (and not have had at least one bad experience with GoDaddy). The sentiment generally isn’t good.
I’m hopeful though. Media Temple has always had skilled, professional support when I’ve worked with them. Even better, contacting their support is rare since they have few outages and no odd server config.
Here’s to hoping GoDaddy learns those things from the team at Media Temple instead of the other way around. It would be a huge positive for a lot of small businesses getting online if so.
