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 source or the current is unstable and unable to support the proper operation of the web servers located within 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's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers at all times, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine that can supply the necessary power to keep the machines up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed 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 Shared Web Hosting

The 99.9% network and hosting server uptime warranty which we provide is, in part, a result of the electrical power backup setup that we have in each of the 3 data centers where we provide shared web hosting packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of many clusters dealing with your content. Every web server inside the selected cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and supply the required power for the entire data center to stay operational for several hours. You'll not notice anything even if there's an interruption, as our backup units will power all the devices and we won't have to limit the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which manages the traffic to your Internet sites.
