SLA-6: Web Site Backups & Availability
NameHOG take every care to ensure your data is kept safe. We take regular backups of your data, so that in the event of failure we should be able to restore your data to how it was before the event. Unfortunately hacking and cyber terrorism is an issue with every hosting provider and cannot always be avoided. As is widely known these days, taking backups of your data is very important, second to having virus protection software on your PC or MAC, so we strongly recommend everyone that they maintain a regular full backup of their account from within their control panel to ensure they have their own copy in case of total failure. NameHOG do carry out backups of your website data, but they do not form part of the service agreement with you. For more information on this and greater detail, please refer to section ELL-13 of your Terms and Conditions along with YMU-2 of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).


SLA-7: 99% Web Site Connectivity
Thanks to the power and resilience of our network infrastructure, we can guarantee that our network and equipment (see explanation below) will be available 99% of the time making sure your web site can always be found. If you find that we fail to meet this promise, liability is limited to the value of the annual hosting fee or the value of the domain name where a forwarder is provided only (per 24 hour period in excess of 24 hours downtime). After 24 hours we will refund 1 day's service for every hour that connectivity has been unavailable over and above 1% (1% allows us for 7 hours and 45 mins down time per month in any 31 day period) for the month, extending in value up to a maximum of your monthly subscription charge. Maximum liability it limited to £100 on any occasion. We can only offer compensation if your refund is greater than £25 due to admin costs. Anything under £25 will incur a £5 administration fee. If the fault if found to be not caused by our equipment, we are unable to refund any money.


The NameHOG 99% Connectivity Guarantee only applies to web and email hosting packages only, this also includes reseller web hosting packages. If in the event of server failure or down time you have found that we are unable to restore your data to your account, the 99% connectivity guarantee only applies to the account, not the data, if there is missing or corrupt data on your account, it is solely the account holders responsibility to restore the data from their own backup if ours are not available.


* Our network and equipment is guaranteed to be there 99% of the time, we cannot guarantee that equipment within the rest of the datacentre or equipment that is out of our control will have the same availability. This SLA only covers the equipment owned or leased by NameHOG Ltd. We do not cover any form of equipment failure outside of our control even if it causes downtime for services that you hold with us. We will however keep you informed of any issues that we are aware of.
