1. Availability – 100% Service Availability Guarantee
iHostXtremes guarantees that it will maintain a 100% up time, excluding scheduled maintenance, for facilities and Internet connectivity as follows: in the event that one or more of Client’s servers or hosting accounts are unable to transmit or receive information via the Internet through the Front-end Network as a result of disruptions to either the Data center or the Front-end Network (a “Covered Outage”), iHostXtremes will, as iHostXtremes's sole obligation and Client's sole and exclusive remedy for failure to meet the foregoing guarantee, credit the Client’s account for every five (5) minutes of such Covered Outage with the prorated fees for one (1) day of services for the affected servers, up to a maximum credit during any calendar month equal to the total prorated fees due to iHostXtremes from Client during such calendar month for the affected servers (“Standard Service Credit”). In no event will iHostXtremes’s scheduled maintenance of the Data center, the Front-end Network or the iHostXtremes Equipment be deemed a Covered Outage entitling Client to the Standard Service Credit.

Outages will be counted as Network Unavailability only if CLIENT opens a trouble ticket with IHOSTXTREMES CLIENT support within five days of the outage. Network unavailability will not include Scheduled Maintenance, or any unavailability resulting from (b) acts or omissions of CLIENT, or any use or user of the service authorized by CLIENT or (c) reasons of Force Majeure (as defined in the contract).
