Service Level Agreement


Our HostBee Service Level Agreement ("SLA") applies to all shared and dedicated clients. The Client agrees that measurements via our third party establish the eligibility for any applicable Performance Credit. In the event that the Client determines that a discrepancy in such measurement exists, Client shall promptly notify HostBee and HostBee and Client will mutually agree upon the validity and accuracy of the measurement, and upon Client's eligibility for any applicable Performance Credits

This SLA may be amended at any time by HostBee.

HostBee Network is defined as the equipment, software, and facilities within the HostBee network segment, including HostBee’s contracted ISP services to which the HostBee network segment is connected and collectively utilized by HostBee to provide dedicated and co-location services

Service Availability is the total time in a calendar month that the HostBee is available through the Internet, provided that Client has established connectivity. HostBee takes responsibility for the Service Availability within its immediate network segment, and cannot be held liable for problems directly related to an upstream bandwidth provider. The HostBee Network will be available to clients free of Network Outages for 99.9% of the time

Service Downtime is any unplanned interruption in Service Availability during which the Client is unable to access the services as described in preceding section, provided the interruption is determined to have been caused by a problem in the immediate HostBee network segment as confirmed by HostBee. Service Downtime is measured as the total length of time of the unplanned interruption in Service Availability during a calendar month. HostBee is not responsible for any unplanned outages due to third-party software failure are the direct responsibility of the software publisher and not of HostBee.

Scheduled Service Downtime is any HostBee interruption of Hosting Services. Scheduled Service Downtime occurs during a HostBee server maintenance window, which occurs in conjunction with a 24 hour notice to the Client via electronic communication.

Performance Credit occurs when 99.9% uptime is not met. HostBee will refund the customer 5% of the monthly fee for each 60 minutes of downtime (up to 100% of the customer's monthly fee). Network downtime is measured from the time a trouble ticket is opened by a customer to the time the server is once again able to transmit and receive data.

Monitoring Service is the service HostBee provides in order to analyze availability of HTTP based services and applications through its third party monitoring system. 
Service Downtime Performance Credit

In the event of Service Downtime in which monthly Service Availability is less than 99.9%, Client will receive a Performance Credit as described above.



This SLA does not cover Service Downtime caused by problems in the following:

-Client's local area network
-Client-provided Internet connectivity or end-user software
-Entities inside Client's internal network including, but not limited to, firewall configuration and bandwidth shaping, local area workstations, or other servers, equipment, and software that have a potential bearing on the local networking environment
