UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an efficient battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers constantly, so if the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the required energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about problems caused by power failures, because, unlike various other providers, we do not keep multiple servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, every web server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS unit that can easily keep it up and running for a long time. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have numerous generators that boot up for minutes and that can power all the hosting servers for an extensive length of time. That way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality service all of the time.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is among the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network that handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to every single server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electrical power for the entire center for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is a disruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available without any disruptions and will operate at top speed.
