UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by web hosting companies in their data centers in the event there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is shaky and unable to maintain the appropriate functioning of the servers situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the electrical power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which helps prevent the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is an engine which can supply the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers working for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

If you host your sites inside a website hosting account with our company, you can forget about issues caused by electric power failures, due to the fact that, in contrast to all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many servers attached to only one UPS. Instead, every single web server that's part of our avant-garde cloud platform has its own UPS device that will be able to keep it operational for many hours. In addition, our data centers in the U.S., in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and which will be able to power each of the web servers for an extensive amount of time. That way, the overall performance of your sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you are able to enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
