    Innovative Hosting Corporation guarantees the uptime of its network 99.999% of the time excluding scheduled maintenance.

    In the event any customer experiences anything less than 99.999% uptime of the Innovative Hosting Corporation Network a credit will be added to the account upon request. Network downtime is defined as the inability to transmit or receive data due to the failure of Innovative Hosting Corporation owned network equipment. Innovative Hosting Corporation will provide a 5% credit to the affected server or shared account for each hour of downtime beyond 0.1% per month. No customer may receive credits totaling more than one month of service per affected server or shared account. Downtime is measured from the time a trouble ticket is opened by the affected customer to the time Innovative Hosting Corporation determines the issue to be resolved, excluding scheduled maintenance.
