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

We offer you shared website hosting plans in 3 of the largest sized data centers throughout the world. They are situated in the United States, in the UK and in Australia. Given that data protection and web server uptime are our priorities, all 3 facilities have numerous backup systems against electric power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers up and running for hours or even for a few days and every machine which is part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators begin working. This setup is one of the reasons why we can guarantee a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your web sites in a shared account with us, you'll enjoy a fast and outstanding service without worrying about any disruptions due to electrical power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is one of the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our sophisticated hosting platform and the network that deals with all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is attached to each and every web server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to offer electrical power for the whole data center for a long time with no need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will work at top speed.
