UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery that is used to power your personal computer or a server to prevent the loss of information when the main power supply fails for whatever reason or becomes risky. A diesel generator basically self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to guarantee the constant running of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS operates all the time, it offers the required power for the machines to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using such a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in the case of a power surge or outage, because it offers them enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the main power supply is restored.

Additionally, our data centers in the United States, in the United Kingdom and in Australia have multiple generators that boot up for minutes and which can easily power all of the hosting servers for an extensive period of time. In this way, the functionality of your sites or their loading speed won't be affected, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted high-quality web hosting service at all times.
