UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by web hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the proper operation of the machines based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so if 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 deliver the required energy to keep the machines operational 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 primary power supply is restored.

We offer shared hosting plans in three of the major data centers worldwide. They're based in the USA, in the United kingdom and in Australia. As data safety and web server uptime are our priorities, all 3 facilities have a number of backup systems against power outages. Several diesel generators can keep the servers working for hours or even for a few days and every machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators kick in. This setup is among the reasons why we are able to ensure a 99.9% server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with us, you shall benefit from a fast and outstanding service without having to worry about any disruptions due to electrical power outages.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an incredible infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an independent UPS for each server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct functioning of any piece of equipment will not be disrupted until powerful generators start providing the required electricity. The latter can power the entire center for quite a long time with no need to shut down any equipment, so all of the sites hosted on our hosting servers shall continue to operate at optimum speed and with no effect on their overall performance. These electrical power backup options permit us to guarantee that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
