UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the correct operation of the web servers based in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers consistently, so when the power stops, the UPS is already functioning, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can provide the necessary energy to keep the machines operational for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, partly, a result of the power backup setup that we have in every of the three data centers where we offer shared hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to create or move your sites, it will be set up on a progressive cloud platform that consists of several clusters dealing with your content. Every single server in the particular cluster has its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until quite a few electric power generators boot up and provide the required power for the entire data center to remain operating for several hours. You'll not notice anything even if there is an interruption, since our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we won't need to reduce the quantity of working hosting servers or the network equipment that deals with the traffic to your sites.

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

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform inside a data center with an excellent infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses a different UPS for every single hosting server or network switch located there to ensure that the proper operation of any device won't be interrupted until effective generators start producing the necessary electric power. The latter will be able to power the entire center for quite a while without having to turn off any machines, so each of the sites hosted on our machines will continue to operate at top speed and without any effect on their overall performance. These electric power backup options enable us to guarantee that any outage will never be a reason for your websites to go offline or to have reduced functionality.
