Media Temple Tops for Hosting Leading Blogs

As online media continues to disrupt news consumption, the leading blogs are building huge audiences and making money – making these top blogs a more attractive customer for hosting and data center providers. Which providers are having the most success with commercial blogs?

Media Temple is the clear winner, according to a survey of where the top 100 blogs are hosted, hosting 13 of the top 100 blogs. The Los Angeles hosting company, which offers shared hosting and a grid platform, counts TechCrunch, Mashable and Dosh Dosh among its customers. Runners-up include Datagram (The Gawker Media blogs and the Huffington Post) and Six Apart (Seth Godin) and Voxel (Perez Hilton, Daily Kos).

While some high-traffic blogs seek out commercial hosting, four of the top 100 continue to host on Google’s free Blogger service, most notably PostSecret.
