DigitalOcean vs MediaTemple

The recent acquisition of MediaTemple by GoDaddy made MediaTemple existing customers unhappy. Even though GoDaddy mentioned that they operate it as a separate section, the people who used Godaddy hosting earlier don’t like to face low quality service again with MediaTemple with this acquisition.  Therefore the reputation gained over a decade by (mt) is going to decrease with this acquisition. This will lead to a gain of new customers to DigitalOcean, specially who used (mt) VPS hosting will choose DigitalOcean due to the huge reputation they gained over past 2 years.

Let’s forget about the acquisition. Just look at the 1 GB RAM VPS hosting plan that you can get from (mt).  The price starts from $30/month for this (mt) 1 GB RAM plan. It is too much when compared to DigitalOcean as well as Linode. Therefore in the pricing war, again DigitalOcean is the winner.
