UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies in their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the web servers located inside the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is an effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if 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 the required electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides 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 Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a website hosting account with us, you will be able to forget about issues caused by power outages, simply because, in contrast to many other providers, we do not keep multiple web servers attached to a single UPS. Instead, each individual server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device that can easily keep it up and running for a long time. In addition, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have numerous generators which boot up for minutes and which will power all of the hosting servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the overall performance of your websites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service constantly.

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created in a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electric power backup system is one of the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every single hosting server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to deliver electricity for the entire center for several hours with no need to reduce the power consumption or the overall performance of any web server or network device, so even in the event that there is a blackout, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be accessible without interruptions and will work at top speed.
