They use bare metal servers with solid state drives for the fastest response times possible.  They also allow you to be billed either monthly or hourly, which is a good option for certain types of businesses that don't really need 24/7 service.  While all their packages use cloud hosting, they do offer dedicated servers and VPS solutions to help make it easier to understand.
