UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the proper functioning of the servers located within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the needed electric power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

If you host your Internet sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you'll be able to forget about issues caused by power outages, simply because, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep numerous hosting servers attached to one UPS. Alternatively, each web server which is part of our avant-garde cloud platform features its own UPS device which will be able to keep it functioning for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and which are able to power all the hosting servers for an extensive amount of time. This way, the performance of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service at all times.

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

We have taken all measures to avoid any service disruptions caused by a electrical power disruption, so if you use a semi-dedicated server account for your Internet sites, you'll enjoy a fast and reliable web hosting service consistently. Each and every hosting server that is part of our custom made platform has an individual UPS to keep it functional until a number of powerful enterprise-class diesel generators take over to provide the necessary electricity for all of the units for as long as required. The latter are potent enough to keep everything up and running at top capacity, so we will not have to shut down any hosting servers or to use a lot less network devices, which could slow the loading speed of your sites or affect their functionality. This top-notch electric power setup is amongst the factors behind our 99.9% server and network uptime guarantee, that is valid for all semi-dedicated plans that we're providing.
