This Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to you ("customer") if you currently hold an account with any of the Hosting or VPS services from VAU Networks Ltd (the "Services") and your account is current (i.e., not past due) with VAU Networks Ltd..
VAU Networks Ltd offers a monthly Uptime Guarantee of 99.9% (“Guarantee”) for the Hosted Services You purchase from Us. If We fail to meet this Guarantee, as solely determined by Us, due to an internal infrastructure or equipment failure, You will be eligible for a Service cycle prolongation for the time the Service was unreachable. The maximum Service cycle prolongation given may be one (1) month of free hosting. Downtime must be confirmed by a staff member of our Support Team.
As used herein, the term "Web Site Availability" means the percentage of a particular month (based on 24-hour days for the number of days in the subject month) that the content of customer's Web site is available for access by third parties via HTTP and/or HTTPS, as measured by VAU Networks Ltd.
We offer 99.9% Monthly Uptime Guarantee for HOSTING and VPS. The first forty-five (45) minutes, i.e. 0.1%, of Service unavailability per month are not eligible.
If the Service has been up for less than 99.9% we'll offer a 1-day Service cycle prolongation for each hour the server has been down below this limit. Please note that all calculations are done only for 30 calendar days of the current calendar month.
For non-scheduled maintenance/downtime, we'll offer a 1-day Service cycle prolongation for each hour of downtime experienced.
