Managed Server & Shared Hosting SLA
99.99% Uptime Guarantee
The 99.99% Uptime Guarantee applies to all shared hosting, and managed dedicated servers leased from us. If there are any overdue payments for dedicated server products or services listed on your account at the time of the downtime, the guarantee is null and void. The guarantee does not include outages caused by scheduled maintenance. The guarantee is valid during the initial 12-month contract. If the 12-month contract is renewed, the guarantee will continue for a further 12 months. This guarantee applies to network and hardware uptime as specified below.
We guarantee that our network will be available to the Internet 100% of the time in a given month. The guarantee does not include availability to any specific point on the Internet.
We guarantee that our server hardware is available 99.99% of the time in a given month. Downtime is defined as where a hardware component is not functioning correctly and causes our server to be unavailable.
If we fail to achieve 99.99% uptime, you may make a claim for credit on your account based on the following uptime table.
|Up to and including 12 hours||10%|
|More than 12 hours and up to and including 72 hours||30%|
|Over 72 hours||50%|
You may make multiple claims in a given month for different periods of downtime up to a maximum credit of 100% of your monthly payment 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.
A claim must be made by downloading the "Claim for Credit" document and completing all required fields and either posting it to our Customer Care Team at Acton House, Perdiswell Park, Worcester, WR3 7GD or faxing it to us on 0345 363 3631 (or, if faxing from abroad, +44 (0)345 363 3631) within 5 working days of the downtime ending.
