UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems which are kept by website hosting service providers within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the primary power supply or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper running of the machines based in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It's connected to both the electric power network and the servers constantly, 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 literally an engine that can give you the necessary electrical power to keep the web servers up and running for a longer period of time. In the event of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, it will be set up on a cutting-edge hosting platform in a data center with an outstanding infrastructure. The Chicago-based data center uses an individual UPS for each server or network switch located there to ensure that the correct operation of any device will not be disrupted until effective generators start supplying the needed electricity. The latter are able to power the whole data center for quite a while without having to turn off any devices, so all the Internet sites hosted on our hosting servers will continue to operate at top speed and with zero effect on their capabilities. These electrical power backup options permit us to ensure that a potential outage will never be a reason for your sites to go offline or to have limited functionality.
