Service Level Agreement

Service Agreement Offered to Web Hosting Services

This quality agreement or SLA (Service Level Agreement) applies for the full range of services offered by Hostico.

By "uptime" we understand the annual percentage, in which your website is available to be accessed from a neutral location via HTTP.

The uptime is measured by the Hostico monitoring systems.

We guarantee an uptime of 99.9% in order to achieve 100% for each of your websites.

If this value drops below 99.9% uptime, the downtime period will be compensated proportionally on the next invoice:


  • 99.0% - 99.8% : 5%
  • 98.0% - 98.9% : 10%
  • 95.0% - 97.9% : 20%
  • 90.0% - 94.9% : 50%
  • 0.00% - 89.9% : 100%


If this value drops below 99.9% uptime, the downtime period will be compensated proportionally on the next invoice. The calculation of the downtime period is based on the billing cycle corresponding to the last paid proforma, using the following formula: [Number of Downtime Hours / (Paid Days * 24)] * 100.
