This web site availability Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to you if ExiaHost.com ("ExiaHost", "our", "us", or "we") is providing Service to you and your account is in good standing. Terms not defined in this SLA have the meaning given to them in your agreement with ExiaHost.
In the event that there is no Web Site Availability, ExiaHost will credit your account with the monthly Fee for the Service as calculated below and as measured 24 hours a day in a calendar month. The maximum credit will not exceed the monthly Fee for the month during which ExiaHost does not meet the Web Site Availability:
In order for you to receive a credit, you must request the credit within seven business days after you experienced Web Site Unavailability. Web Site Unavailability means: your web site is not responding to HTTP requests, or unavailable via the HTTP protocol. You request credit by sending a request to our billing department through our helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org). The message must originate from the primary email we have in our records for you, and contain your domain name, the dates and times of the unavailability of your web site, and any other customer identification requested by ExiaHost. Credits will typically be applied to your account within sixty days of your credit request. This credit is your sole and exclusive remedy for our failure to meet the Web Site Availability SLA. The statistics generated by our internal monitoring services are the final determination of the uptime of our service, and not any one client's experience.
Credits will not be provided to you in the event that you have no Web Site Availability because of: (i) scheduled maintenance, (ii) your behavior or the performance or failure of your equipment, programs or applications, or (iii) circumstances beyond ExiaHost's reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, DDoS attacks (distributed denial-of-service), unavailability of interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services (including DNS propagation), failure of third party software or hardware or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for the Services.
5. Shared Hosting Backups
ExiaHost performs daily and/or weekly backups on all of our shared servers to ensure that critical files are never lost. However, ExiaHost is not responsible for lost data, time, income or any other resource due to faulty or non-existent backups.
Please always backup your data for redundancy. There is a one-time fee of $10.00 for us to restore a backup for your account due to an error beyond our control. If your account or data is lost due to hardware issues we will restore your files at no additional charge. The data on our shared servers are backed up on a separate hard drive on a daily and/or weekly basis. We cannot ensure 100% recovery, but we will do our best to recover everything we can. The modest charge for backup restoration provides a measure of security for you and compensates us for the time it takes to restore your files.
6. Response Time SLA
ExiaHost.com does not offer, nor advertise, 24/7 support for clients. Our normal ticket response hours are between 9 AM EST and 10 PM EST. Any responses received before or after these times are not typically standard and should not be expected.
There are times where a technical issue may require an extended period of time to resolve. You agree that you will not hold us liable for any potential downtime that may be caused due to this issue. You also agree that you will not hold us liable for any potential lost income due to the possible downtime caused by the issue. We will work with our best reasonable efforts to resolve any issue in a timely manner, however, there may be times where downtime is out of our control (such as with hardware failure).
