Uptime Guarantee

HostSlick.com guarantee your server uptime will be at least 99%

If your server isn't available for the guaranteed amount of the time within a given month, we will give you a pro-rated credit for the time.

While we rarely have server issues that result in downtime, we admit that short lapses in service can happen. When they do, you shouldn't have to pay. Which is why we drafted our unique 99% Uptime Guarantee. Many hosts offer "uptime guarantees" but make no mention of what happens if they don't meet their posted uptime figure. We stand behind our network reliability by offering you a pro-rated credit for any downtime outside of our guaranteed window.

 

Service credits are calculated as follows:

 

  • 100% - 99.9% uptime : No credit
  • 99.9% - 99.5% uptime : 5% credit
  • 99.5% - 99% uptime : 10% credit
  • 99% - 98% uptime : 15% credit
  • 98% - 95% uptime : 25% credit
  • Less than 95% uptime : 100% credit

 

 

 

Please note that this guarantee applies only to unscheduled outages. Occasional planned server/network maintenance may be necessary. In all but the most urgent cases, we will send out an email notifying customers of maintenance that is to be performed. When notice is sent at least two hours prior to service interruption, the outage does not qualify for our uptime guarantee.

Notes: Service credits issued for downtime are issued in the form of credits to your HostSlick account, and will be automatically applied to future invoices. Cash refunds will not be issued as a result of downtime. Site availability guarantee does not include downtime that is out of HostSlick's control, including but not limited to: upstream network outages, internet backbone congestion, outages caused by acts of god, and facility power failures. Account must also be in good standing & not in violation of our Terms of Service or Acceptable Use policies. Service credits should be requested at the end of the month for the current month or beginning of the month for the previous month. Back credits will not be applied.
