The backup space is encrypted on Our servers and is only accessible to You with the use of Your username and password. Should you lose this username and password it is difficult for Us to reset Your password without permanently losing Your data.

We will contact You regarding an upgrade to Your web hosting, cloud hosting, business hosting and reseller hosting Product, if deemed necessary.

In some scenarios We may take preventive measures such as the blocking or filtering of common email ports in order to reduce the impact of IP address blacklistings.

21.1 All web hosting, cloud hosting, business hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, virtual server, cloud server, storage server, cloud load balancer, cloud database, cloud firewall, private cloud and managed hosting Products carry a 99.9% monthly uptime guarantee. If, at the end of the month, We have fallen short of this guarantee, Service credits may be issued to Your account in accordance with the terms set out below.
100% to 99.9% uptime – no credit
99.89% to 99.8% uptime – 20% credit

21.2 Where You have a VPS, virtual server, cloud server, storage server, cloud load balancer, cloud firewall or private cloud Product, Our uptime guarantee covers the hardware and network link of the node Your Product is hosted on. The uptime guarantee does not cover individual VPS, virtual servers, cloud servers, cloud load balancers or cloud firewalls, as they can be powered off and/or rebooted by You, or misconfigured and marked as offline.
21.3 Where You have a web hosting, cloud hosting, business hosting, reseller hosting, cloud database or managed hosting Product, Our uptime guarantee covers the hardware, network link and base Operating System software configuration of the server Your Product is hosted on. The uptime guarantee does not cover individual web sites or hosted services as they can face coding problems, redirects, manipulation of HTTP status codes and such like that may mark them as offline.
21.4 Some Services - such as CDN and DNS hosting - carry a 100% monthly uptime guarantee. This uptime guarantee is applicable to the Service as a whole rather than individual endpoints or servers; for example, if one CDN endpoint or one DNS hosting server suffers an outage, a partial performance degradation may occur though the Service will continue to operate at 100% uptime. However, if multiple CDN endpoints or DNS hosting servers suffer outages simultaneously, the Service may not maintain 100% uptime. If, at the end of the month, We have fallen short of the 100% uptime guarantee, Service credits may be issued to Your account in accordance with the terms set out below.
100% uptime – no credit
99.99% to 99.90% uptime – 30% credit

less than 99.79% uptime – 90% credit
21.5 Our servers and nodes are monitored by three internal monitoring systems on our network, and uptimerobot.com, an external independent monitoring platform. We will only base Our monthly uptime from the results of these platform. You may request a copy of the uptime information for any servers and nodes relating to your Products by submitting a support ticket or sending an email. For Our security, such information is not openly published and thus is available on a per-request basis.
21.6 Any scheduled maintenance listed on our system status page including any resulting downtime is excluded from the uptime guarantee. Our system status page is available at www.hostingstatus.net.
21.7 From time to time You may experience DoS or DDoS attacks against Your Product or Service. During such times of DoS or DDoS attacks whereby You are notified by support ticket or a status update is published on our system status page, Our uptime guarantee is not applicable.
21.8 Select Products and Services include free DDoS attack mitigation, and/or chargeable DDoS attack mitigation services. All DDoS attack mitigation services are offered on a best-effort basis, and due to ever-evolving attack vector methods, We are not able to guarantee uptime or stability during such times of DDoS attacks. Subsequently, during times whereby DDoS attack mitigation methods are unsuccessful and such attack(s) are disrupting service for other customers, We may be required to null route the IP addresses of Your Products and Services, or suspend Your Products and Services for the duration of the attack(s).
21.9 If We have fallen short of Our monthly uptime guarantee, You must open a support ticket during the following month, and request that the relevant credit be added to Your account. We will only credit for your core Product, excluding the value of any add-ons, extras or licenses You may have.

23.1 You agree that You shall indemnify, save and hold Us harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable legal fees asserted against Us, Our agents, Customers, offices and Staff, that may arise or result from any acts or omissions of You, Your agents, staff or assigns in connection with the use of Our Products and Services.
