UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by hosting providers within their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unsound and unable to support the correct running of the servers based within the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's an efficient battery that works non-stop. It's connected to both the power network and the servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already operational, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is certainly an engine which can provide the needed power to keep the servers operational for a longer period of time. In case of an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main power source is restored.

If you host your websites inside a cloud hosting account with us, you shall be able to forget about problems caused by electric power failures, due to the fact that, different from all kinds of other providers, we don't keep many servers attached to only one UPS. Alternatively, each individual hosting server that is part of our avant-garde cloud platform comes with its own UPS device which can easily keep it functioning for hours. Moreover, our data centers in the U.S., in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and which can power each of the web servers for an extensive length of time. That way, the overall performance of your Internet sites or their loading speed will not be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service all of the time.
