UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is shaky and unable to support the proper functioning of the web servers located in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the web servers constantly, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can give you the needed power to keep the servers up and running for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the necessary time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

Also, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have a number of generators that boot up for minutes and that can easily power all of the servers for an extensive stretch of time. This way, the features of your Internet sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you'll be able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.

An individual UPS device is attached to each and every server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are efficient enough to supply electricity for the entire facility for a long time without having to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even if there is an interruption, all of the sites hosted on our platform will still be available with no disruptions and will function at top speed.
