UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper operation of the servers located in the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the web servers constantly, 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 an engine which can provide you with the necessary energy to keep the web servers up and running 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 power supply is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites inside a shared hosting account with us, you can forget about problems caused by electrical power failures, due to the fact that, different from various other providers, we don't keep many different web servers attached to one UPS. Alternatively, each server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS unit that can easily keep it functioning for many hours. Additionally, our data centers in the USA, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have a number of generators which boot up for minutes and that will power all of the web servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.

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

We provide semi-dedicated server accounts in our data center in downtown Chicago and one of the factors behind our 99.9% uptime warranty is the exceptional backup setup that the facility has. Your new account will be created on our top-notch website hosting platform and each of the servers that are part of it provides its own highly effective UPS unit which will ensure that it stays 100% operational at highest capacity until several diesel generators take over. The latter will be able to keep the whole data center operating for a long length of time, without any restrictions on the quantity or the type of devices that can work, so you'll not notice any difference in the general performance or the loading speed of any website that you host there. With our semi-dedicated hosting servers, you will have the ability to use a top-quality hosting service with no disruptions of any sort.
