Web Hosting Service Level Agreement

STPWebhosting.com, is proud to offer an exceptional level of performance, reliability, and service. That is why we are making commitments to our customers in the form of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) which provides certain rights and remedies regarding the performance of the STPWebhosting.com network. The STPWebhosting.com Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees our network/equipment reliability and performance. This Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to customers of STPWebhosting.com's web hosting, reseller, dedicated server, co-location, e-commerce, and dial-up/dedicated access services.

Uptime Guarantee:

STPWebhosting.com strives to maintain a 99.9% network and server uptime service level. This uptime percentage is a monthly figure, and it is calculated solely by STPWebhosting.com monitoring systems or STPWebhosting.com authorized/contracted outside monitoring services. If STPWebhosting.com fails to meet it's 99.9% uptime guarantee, and it is not due to one of the exceptions below, credits will be made available to each client, upon request, on a case by case basis. STPWebhosting.com does not credit a full month's service for minor downtime. This would not be financially healthy for STPWebhosting.com, and in turn would only negatively affect the service level STPWebhosting.com provides to you. "Partial refunds for partial downtime" is our standard policy. In extreme circumstances, STPWebhosting.com may distribute full month credits, but this is dealt with on a case by case basis. Details on how credit amounts are calculated can be found below.

Exceptions:

STP Web Hosting is neither responsible for any damages nor provide any credits under this SLA in connection with any failure or deficiency of the STPWebhosting.com network caused by or associated with:

 

  • Circumstances beyond reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, "Acts of God" (ie...fire, flood, earthquake, tornado, etc...), strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Service Level Agreement.
  • Telco Failure (ie...Verizon cutting a fiber line somewhere)
  • Backbone peering point issues (ie...UUnet having a router go down in Virginia that wipes out internet service for the entire East Coast)
  • Scheduled maintenance for hardware/software upgrades. StpWebHosting.com and its third party vendors have the right to schedule a service maintenance, that may result in significant downtime of StpWebHosting.com’s services, without any advance notice to its clients. However, we will make every effort to provide advanced notification to the client's admin email only or provide updates on the support desk or website.
  • Hardware failure (faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided). v utilizes only name brand hardware of the highest quality and performance.
  • Software maintenance, downgrades/upgrades, bugs/flaws, any technical support to 3rd party software (Exploits and bugs may develop that cause security issues or downtime)
  • DNS issues not within the direct control of STPWebhosting.com
  • Network floods, hacks, attacks from outside parties or individuals Failure or error of any STPWebhosting.com monitoring or measurement system
  • Client’s acts or omissions, including without limitation, any negligence, willful misconduct, or use of STPWebhosting.com service(s) in breach of STPWebhosting.com Policy and Service Guidelines (AUP), by Client or others authorized by Client.
  • Website backup is offered as a free service to clients. Though stpwebhosting.com takes regular backup of client's website, it is client's responsibility to maintain regular backup of their full website. STP Web Hosting neither take responsibility of regular backups nor it is responsible for restoring the recent (available) backup. Website backup is completely free service offered by stpwebhosting.com as a redundent backup of client's data.

Connectivity:

STPWebhosting.com's goal is to make the STPWebhosting.com network available to Client free of outages for 99.9% of the time. An "outage” is defined as an instance in which Client is unable to transmit and receive IP packets due to a STPWebhosting.com service failure for more than 15 consecutive minutes, excluding service failures relating to STPWebhosting.com's scheduled maintenance and upgrades. The STPWebhosting.com network does not include client premises equipment or any Telco access facilities connecting Client's premises to such infrastructure. STPWebhosting.com's goal is to keep Average Round-Trip Latency on the STPWebhosting.com network to 85 milliseconds or less. STPWebhosting.com defines “Average Round-Trip Latency”, with respect to a given month, as the average time required for round-trip packet transfers between the STPWebhosting.com network and major US backbone peering points during such month, as measured by STPWebhosting.com. STPWebhosting.com's goal is to keep Average Packet Loss on the STPWebhosting.com network to 1% or less. STPWebhosting.com defines “Average Packet Loss”, with respect to a given month, as the average percentage of IP packets transmitted on the STPWebhosting.com network during such month that are not successfully delivered, as measured by STPWebhosting.com.

Measurement:

STPWebhosting.com will periodically (on average every 1 minutes) monitor STPWebhosting.com network and server availability using software and hardware components capable of measuring application traffic and responses. Client acknowledges that that such measurements may not measure the exact path traversed by Client’s internet connection, and that such measurements constitute measurements across the STPWebhosting.com network but not other networks to which Client may connect. STPWebhosting.com reserves the right to periodically change the measurement points and methodologies it uses without notice to Client. Full network and server reporting will be posted to a location designated by STPWebhosting.com and made available to Client.

Hardware Failure:

STPWebhosting.com stands behind all equipment on our network. Faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided. STPWebhosting.com utilizes only name brand hardware of the highest quality and performance. STPWebhosting.com will replace all faulty hardware affecting performance levels of equipment within 48 hours, which includes hardware issues that cause server crashes or speed issues. Hardware failure resulting in complete network/server outage/downtime will be corrected within two hours of problem identification. Router failure is an exception to this SLA guarantee, and may require on-site Cisco engineers or backbone provider emergency personnel to correct the problem. Router failure is governed by current STPWebhosting.com contracts with Cisco and backbone providers in regard to the emergency repair service in case of such an issue. STPWebhosting.com will replace all faulty hardware on dedicated servers (rented or leased servers), at no charge to the Client, with an unlimited free replacement policy. This includes parts ordered as upgrades.

Credits:

Credit requests must be made using the helpdesk of STPWebhosting.com, by filling out the "Service Level Agreement Support Request". Each request in connection with network/server outages/downtime must be received by STPWebhosting.com within five days of the occurrence. Each request in connection with Average Round-Trip Latency or Average Packet Loss in a calendar month must be received by STPWebhosting.com within five days after the end of such month. The total amount credited to a Client for STPWebhosting.com not meeting SLA service levels will not exceed the service fees paid by Client STPWebhosting.com for such services for the period in question. Each validly requested credit will be applied to a Client invoice within 30 days after STPWebhosting.com's receipt of such request. Credits are exclusive of any applicable taxes charged to Client or collected by STPWebhosting.com. Upon Client’s request (in accordance with the procedure set forth below), STPWebhosting.com will issue a credit to Client for network/server outages/downtime occurring during any calendar month that are reported by Client to STPWebhosting.com and confirmed by STPWebhosting.com's measurement reporting. Such credit will be equal to one day’s worth (1/30th) of the monthly fees paid by Client, (for all service fees paid if network outage, or specific affected service fees paid if individual server downtime) multiplied by each hour (or portion thereof rounded to nearest next hour) of the cumulative duration of such outage/downtime. If Average Round-Trip Latency on the STPWebhosting.com network for a calendar month exceeds 85 milliseconds, then upon Client's request, STPWebhosting.com will issue a credit to Client equal to one day's worth (1/30th) of the monthly service fees paid by Client for such month. If Average Packet Loss exceeds 1% during a calendar month, then upon Client’s request, STPWebhosting.com will issue a credit to Client equal to one day's worth (1/30th) of the monthly service fees paid by Client for such month.
