UPSs and diesel generators are two backup systems that are kept by hosting companies within their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power supply or the current is unstable and unable to maintain the appropriate operation of the web servers situated in the facility. UPS is short for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a highly effective battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electrical power network and the servers at all times, so in case the power stops, the UPS is already working, which prevents the web servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can deliver the needed electric power to keep the servers working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the required time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.

Moreover, our data centers in the United States, in the UK and in Australia have multiple generators which boot up for minutes and that will be able to power each of the web servers for an extensive period of time. That way, the functionality of your Internet sites or their loading speed shall not be affected, so you may enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality hosting service all the time.
