One of the interesting things about Media Temple is the breadth of hosting solutions they offer.
Among their least expensive plans is WordPress-specific hosting. Just $20/month, but very powerful and fast hosting, thanks to it being tuned just for WordPress. WP-CLI is installed right on it and it auto-updates WordPress core for you. Not to mention it’s all on SSD’s, you get SSH access, and you get 24/7 WordPress-certified support.
There are loads of plans that scale up from here, all the way up to incredibly high-end servers. I was just chatting with some Media Temple folks about some real white-glove support they were doing with a huge enterprise client. Guess what kind of site it was? WordPress. All set up on Amazon Web Services and fully managed by Media Temple.
