Media Temple is my web host here at CSS-Tricks. I still remember what it was like buying my first web hosting, pointing a domain name to it, FTPing into that server, and having the files I put there appear in the web browser. Powerful stuff, kids. Watch out or you might try to turn it into a career!
I've upgraded my server a few times since then, but it's still a pretty standard grade Media Temple server that happily hosts this site with little trouble. When there is anything weird, I use the same support system to get help as is available to anybody else, and they always go out of there way to investigate what's going on and explain what's up.
