    Uptime Guarantee:

    Host4Half strives to maintain a 99.9% network and server uptime service level. This uptime percentage is a monthly figure, and is calculated solely by Host4Half monitoring systems or Host4Half authorized/contracted outside monitoring services. If Host4Half fails to meet its 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. Host4Half does not credit a full month's service for minor downtime. This would not be financially healthy for Host4Half, and in turn would only negatively affect the service level Host4Half provides to you. "Partial refunds for partial downtime" is our standard policy. In extreme circumstances, Host4Half may distribute full month credits, but this is dealt with on a case by case basis. Credits are issued for one month’s service only, never more.
