UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the appropriate running of the web servers based inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers constantly, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the necessary electric power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

We offer cloud website hosting services in 3 of the largest data centers globally. They're located in the USA, in the United kingdom and in Australia. Since data protection and web server uptime are our priorities, the 3 facilities have a number of backup systems against electrical power outages. A few diesel generators can keep the hosting servers operational for hours or even for several days and every machine that is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform has its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators kick in. This setup is one of the reasons why we can guarantee a 99.9% hosting server and network uptime, so if you host your Internet sites inside a shared account with our company, you will take advantage of a fast and flawless service and never having to worry about any disturbances due to electric power outages.
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 downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines that are part of our innovative hosting platform and the network that addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to each and every machine to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to provide electricity for the entire data center for a long time with no need to restrict the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be available without any disruptions and will perform at top speed.
