UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the proper running of the servers located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the necessary electric power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and server uptime warranty which we offer is, partly, a result of the electrical power backup setup which we have in every of the three data centers in which we offer shared web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform that consists of many clusters handling your content. Every single web server in the given cluster has its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire center to be working for several hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an outage, because our backup units will power all of the devices and we will not have to limit the amount of working web servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.

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

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a separate UPS for every single server or network switch located there to make sure that the correct operation of any device shall not be interrupted until powerful generators start supplying the necessary electric power. The latter can power the entire facility for quite a long time with no need to shut down any devices, so each of the sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to work at top speed and without any effect on their functionality. These power backup options permit us to ensure that any outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have lowered functionality.
