UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by website hosting companies inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is shaky and unable to sustain the appropriate running of the servers located within the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web 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 certainly an engine which can supply the necessary power to keep the web servers functioning for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.

UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
The semi-dedicated server accounts we offer you are created within a state-of-the-art data center in the town center of Chicago and its electrical power backup system is amongst the reasons why we are able to afford to guarantee a 99.9% uptime for both the machines which are part of our highly developed hosting platform and the network which manages all of the traffic to and from them. An individual UPS device is connected to every hosting server to keep it online until a number of generators kick in. The latter are potent enough to supply electricity for the entire data center for a long time with no need to minimize the power consumption or the overall performance of any hosting server or network device, so even if there is a blackout, all of the Internet sites hosted on our platform will still be accessible with no disruptions and will work at top speed.
