The UPS and the diesel generator are 2 devices for keeping a web server functional if there are problems with the main power source - a disruption or unreliable current that cannot keep the hosting server functional, for example. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently called Uninterruptible Power Source too. The UPS is, essentially, an effective battery which is connected to the machine and to the electricity network at all times, so in case of any blackout, it is already working, which enables the hosting server to continue operating without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that can power up the entire data center. It does take some time to begin working and it is the UPS which gives it that time. Those two power solutions are an absolute necessity for any facility or hosting company that wants to stop information loss and hardware damage resulting from an unexpected electrical power problem.

We offer Linux shared hosting packages in 3 of the major data centers around the world. They're based in the USA, in the UK and in Australia. Considering that data protection and server uptime are our priorities, the 3 facilities have numerous backup systems against electric power outages. A number of diesel generators can keep the servers operational for hours or even for a couple of days and each machine that's part of our cutting-edge cloud platform provides its own enterprise-class UPS to keep it operational until the generators kick in. This setup is one of the reasons why you can easily ensure a 99.9% web server and network uptime, so if you host your websites within a shared account with our company, you'll take advantage of a fast and outstanding service and never having to worry about any disruptions due to power outages.

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

The semi-dedicated server accounts which we provide you with are created in a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we can afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the web servers which are part of our advanced web hosting platform and the network that addresses all the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS unit is connected to every single hosting server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electric power for the entire center for several hours without having to reduce the power consumption or the functionality of any server or network device, so even in case there is a blackout, all of the websites hosted on our platform will still be accessible without disturbances and will operate at top speed.
