UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the proper operation of the web servers situated inside the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery that 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 up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide you with the needed electrical power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the required 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 Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we provide is, somewhat, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the three data centers where we provide website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to build or move your sites, it will be set up on an innovative cloud platform which consists of a number of clusters controlling your content. Each hosting server inside the specific cluster features its own highly effective enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several power generators boot up and give the required power for the entire center to stay operating for many hours. You will not notice anything even if there's an outage, as our backup units could power each of the devices and we won't have to reduce the number of working servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the downtown area of Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our highly developed website hosting platform and the network that deals with all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is attached to every single web server to keep it online until a variety of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to provide electricity for the whole data center for many hours without having to restrict the power consumption or the productivity of any server or network device, so even if there is a disruption, all the sites hosted on our platform will still be available without any interruptions and will function at top speed.
