UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the correct running of the servers located inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine that can provide you with the required electrical power to keep the machines functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

If you host your websites inside a cloud website hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about complications caused by electric power failures, because, different from all kinds of other providers, we do not keep multiple servers attached to one UPS.

Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and that are able to power each of the hosting servers for an extensive amount of time. In this way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service constantly.

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

If you order a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses an independent UPS for every single server or network switch located there to make certain that the ideal functioning of any piece of equipment will not be disturbed until powerful generators start providing the needed electric power. The latter can easily power the whole center for quite a while without having to turn off any equipment, so each of the sites hosted on our machines will continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their functionality. These electrical power backup options enable us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
