UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate functioning of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can give you the required electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites within a shared hosting account with us, you'll be able to forget about problems caused by electric power failures, simply because, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many different servers attached to one UPS. Rather, each and every machine that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS unit that can easily keep it functioning for hours on end. Moreover, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have many different generators which boot up for minutes and which are able to power all the servers for an extensive time period. That way, the features of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all of the time.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The semi-dedicated server accounts we provide you with are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our highly developed web hosting platform and the network that manages all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each and every server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are effective enough to offer electricity for the entire center for a long time without having to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no interruptions and will operate at top speed.
