Cloud Web is in fact Cloud Powered, and AFFORDABLE!

Taken from our cloud technology page:
"Lowest costs, flexible scaling, increased reliability, and the decoupling of management at the operating system and application levels are just a few of the main benefits that Cloud Technology provide us. Single points of failure are eliminated with Cloud Web from not only the software, but hardware levels as well. We can deploy, scale, or migrate entire servers in just a few moments, which is much faster than a traditional Web Hosting environment. No longer are Web Hosting "servers" tied to a physical machine. When you have an account with Cloud Web, your account is instantly and constantly replicated across multiple machines and multiple storage locations. If your website is running on a physical server that crashes, it is instantly restarted on one that available. You may have read about massive cloud failures with other companies, however many of those were due to a single point of failure on the underlying engine. Each one of our private clouds run off of an underlying engine or distribution server which manages the applications running on each cloud and physical server. In Cloud Web, we replicate this engine in real time across multiple physical machines so in the event of a failure, the backup engine is automatically and instantly restarted on another server. Our custom implementation provides the benefits a cloud provides, but environments are also separated into smaller, scalable applications similar to that of a traditional Shared Web Hosting provider."
At first glance, all of this sounds expensive! But, you say "Lowest costs" so how is that so? There are in fact companies out there charging $149/mo as a starting price for this type of service, but we're not. Yes, we're duplicating the environments so that means more servers and more switches. Yes, we're paying a lot of software licensing and support fees. Yes, we're paying more for training and engineering abilities to architect, operate, and maintain our private cloud's. However, Cloud is also providing other benefits as listed above, so other costs have gone down, and we're able to utilize our hardware in a much more efficient manner instead of wasting countless resources. At the end of the day, we're able to offer this service for a price that is truly AFFORDABLE.

"I was unhappy with my previous provider and researched my choice carefully. Cloud Web was already hosting a large and respected site that I frequent regularly and they had nothing but the highest of praise for Cloud Web, so I changed. My needs are much smaller scale, but I have been extremely pleased. The personal service has been ever available and it is refreshing to unfailingly get questions promptly answered and configuration problems solved.…(more)
