The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 means for keeping a web server operational if there are difficulties with the main power source - an interruption or unreliable current that can't keep the hosting server working properly, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, although it can often be called Uninterruptible Power Source also. The UPS is, basically, a highly effective battery which is attached to the web server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case there is any disruption, it is already functioning, which allows the web server to carry on operating without losing any info. The diesel generator is an engine which can power up an entire data center. It needs some time to start working and it's the UPS which provides this time. These two power solutions are fundamental for any facility or hosting company that wants to prevent data loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected electric power issue.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Website Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime guarantee which we offer you is, somewhat, a result of the electrical power backup setup we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared website hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in Coventry (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you purchase a new account to develop or move your Internet sites, it shall be set up on a modern cloud platform which consists of many clusters controlling your content. Each machine within the given cluster features its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it functioning no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to be functional for several hours. You won't notice anything even in case there is an outage, as our backup units will power each of the devices and we shall not need to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment that deals with 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 shall be created on a cutting-edge hosting platform within a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based facility uses a separate UPS for every single web server or network switch located there to make sure that the proper operation of any device won't be disturbed until highly effective generators start supplying the required electric power. The latter are able to power the entire center for quite a while without having to turn off any equipment, so all the sites hosted on our web servers shall continue to function at max speed and without any effect on their performance. These power backup options enable us to guarantee that a possible outage will never be a reason for your Internet sites to go offline or to have minimized functionality.
