UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the correct running of the servers situated inside the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine which can supply the required power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Website Hosting

We offer you website hosting in three of the major data centers globally. They're based in the USA, in the UK and in Australia. Since data protection and web server uptime are our priorities, all three facilities have several backup systems against power outages. Several diesel generators can keep the web servers working for hours or even for a few days and every machine that is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it working until the generators start working. This setup is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with us, you will enjoy a fast and remarkable service without having to worry about any disturbances due to electrical power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we provide are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its electrical power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers that are part of our highly developed web hosting platform and the network which handles all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every machine to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electricity for the entire center for a long time without having to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no interruptions and will perform at top speed.
