  • Excludes Services Downtime
  • Example of Server uptime guarantee:
  • 99.5% uptime = 216 minutes of downtime in a month
  • 99.8% uptime = 86.4 minutes of downtime in a month
  • 99.9% uptime = 43.2 minutes of downtime in a month
  • 99.99% uptime = 4.32 minutes of downtime in a month
  • 99.999% uptime = 0.432 minutes (26 seconds) in a month

 

Claiming Downtime:

 

Customer shall not receive any credits under this 99.9% Network Uptime and 99.5% Server Uptime Guarantee in connection with any failure or deficiency of VPS Server Availability caused by or associated with:

 

  • Circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, terrorism, sabotage, armed conflict, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, virus attacks or hackers, failure of third party software (including, without limitation, ecommerce software, payment gateways, chat, statistics or free scripts) or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of this SLA;
  • Failure of access circuits to our network, unless such failure is caused solely by VPS Hosting;
  • Scheduled maintenance and emergency maintenance and upgrades;
  • Downed Services running on the VPS (example, apache, sendmail, ftp, etc..);
  • Third party monitoring service reports may not be used due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability;
  • DNS issues outside the direct control of VPS Hosting;
  • Issues with FTP, POP, IMAP, or SMTP customer access;

  • Email or webmail delivery and transmission;
  • DNS (Domain Name Server) Propagation.
  • Outages elsewhere on the Internet that hinder access to your account. VPS Hosting is not responsible for browser or DNS caching that may make your site appear inaccessible when others can still access it. VPS Hosting will guarantee only those areas considered under the control of VPS Hosting: our server links to the Internet, our routers, and our servers;
  • Customer has completely settled any outstanding bill as of the time of outage.

  •         

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • You may make multiple claims in a given month for different periods of downtime up to a maximum credit of 100% of your monthly rate for the specific server. For the purpose of claiming credit, downtime officially starts from the time you log a report notifying us of the downtime.
  • The claims submitted by customers must contain the following particulars of information:

 

  • Customers Name
  • VPS IP
  • Date and approximate period of downtime
  • Unavailability information

 

Any claims submitted without any of the particulars of information above shall be treated as incomplete and VPS Hosting has the right to reject such claims.

 

  • VPS Hosting will review all such claims within seven (7) business days thereof. Upon review and findings, VPS Hosting will inform the customers by e-mail whether the appropriate claim will be granted or rejected. If the claim is allowed, the credit will not be reflected in the current bill, but in the following bill.

 

Services Downtime:

 

Many VPS’s run various services (such as Apache, mysql, sendmail) and these services may stop unexpectedly as your guaranteed resources are used up. There are a number of reasons for this including high-traffic, erroneous code leading to memory leaks, etc…

 

For this reason we cannot offer any Services Uptime Guarantee, but we will assist in resolving the issue via our 24x7 support.
