UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery used to power your personal computer or a hosting server to avoid the loss of info when the main source of energy fails for reasons unknown or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator pretty much self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to guarantee the uninterrupted running of all the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates at all times, it offers the necessary power for the machines to remain operational until the generator starts and takes over. Using this kind of a backup is crucial for any data center or service provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it offers them enough time to react until the problem is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.

The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee which we provide is, partly, a result of the electric power backup setup which we have in each of the 3 data centers in which we provide shared web hosting plans - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you get a new account to build or move your sites, it shall be created on a cutting-edge cloud platform which consists of several clusters controlling your content. Each and every web server inside the given cluster provides its own potent enterprise-class UPS to keep it up and running no matter what, until several electrical power generators boot up and provide the necessary power for the whole center to be operating for many hours. You will not notice anything even in case there is an outage, due to the fact that our backup units can easily power all of the devices and we won't have to reduce the quantity of working web servers or the network equipment which addresses the traffic to your sites.

The semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are created inside a state-of-the-art data center in downtown Chicago and its power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the servers which are part of our sophisticated website hosting platform and the network that addresses all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS system is attached to each server to keep it online until several generators kick in. The latter are powerful enough to supply electrical power for the entire center for many hours with no need to limit the power consumption or the overall performance of any server or network device, so even when there is an interruption, all the sites hosted on our platform shall still be available with no disruptions and will operate at top speed.
