Local Small Business Hosting Service Level Guarantees
Network Uptime Guarantee
Local Small Business Hosting guarantees that the main virtual machine where your VPS is located will be up and running at least 99.9% of the time during your subscription with us. However, we cannot be held responsible for upstream problems outside of our network and areas where Local Small Business Hosting has no direct influence, such as backbone provider failures, fiber-optic main line cuts, DNS or Registrar problems with subscribers’ domain names, routing problems between a client’s location and our data center. The uptime guarantee is also not applicable if the service interruption was caused by a natural or unnatural event that is not directly under the control (or jurisdiction) of Local Small Business Hosting. Local Small Business Hosting may temporarily deny or terminate the Service upon client’s failure to pay their charges at due time.
Local Small Business Hosting guarantees 99.9% network uptime and server stability for the main virtual machine. This, however, does not refer to problems stemming from:
a. Server Hardware Breakdown.
b. User error(s) or purposeful interruption(s) (e.g. if the client shuts his/her own server down, Local Small Business Hosting is not responsible for the downtime).
c. Failures due to software that is not explicitly supported by Local Small Business Hosting. Consequently, if a hardware crash provoked by the customer happens, Local Small Business Hosting has no responsibility for the resulting downtime.
Network Outages or Unexpected Downtime is any unplanned or unexpected interruption in the network availability due to hardware, software, network connectivity or data center problem, during which a 100% packet loss is experienced.
Scheduled Downtime is any scheduled interruption of the services for the purpose of network software/hardware upgrades, or replacement of any network equipment in order to be provided better service for the customers. Scheduled downtimes occur within pre-notified downtime periods, with as many warnings as possible sent via e-mail or posted in our news section minimum 24-hour in advance.
SUPPORT RESPONSE GUARANTEE
Local Small Business Hosting guarantees 24/7 support available 365 days per year, for all the pre-installed software on your VPS. Support is available via our online Contact Us form, via email, and the VPS Plan Manager integrated ticketing system. Each ticket is replied to within no more than 60 minutes after it has been opened.
