UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the correct functioning of the machines situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers all of the time, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine that can supply the necessary electric power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. If there is 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 Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty that we provide is, somewhat, a result of the power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers in which we offer shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you obtain a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it will be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of several clusters handling your content. Every hosting server within the given cluster provides its own powerful enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire facility to remain functional for a lot of hours. You won't notice anything even if there is an outage, because our backup units will power each of the devices and we shall not need to limit the amount of working hosting servers or the network equipment that manages the traffic to your websites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer you are created in 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 afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the hosting servers which are part of our innovative website hosting platform and the network that handles all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every hosting server to keep it online until numerous generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to deliver electrical power for the entire data center for several hours with no need to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any hosting server or network device, so even when there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without interruptions and will operate at top speed.
