GreenGeeks SLA Credit Policy

As part of our customer loyalty program, GreenGeeks has implemented the following SLA policy.

Should GreenGeeks’ network or hardware infrastructure face any form of downtime, customers will be compensated for the downtime at a rate based on their hosting rate. In the event of unscheduled or emergency maintenance, GreenGeeks will compensate at 3x the hosting rate (outage windows rounded to the nearest hour).

Compensation Rates
Scheduled maintenance: 1x rate.
Unscheduled or emergency maintenance: 3x rate.

Compensation Examples

  1. Scenario #1:
    – Monthly Shared EcoSite Starter Customer ($9.95/month)
    – Unscheduled maintenance lasting 1.5 hours total compensation: $0.08
    Calculations:

    • Determine daily rate: $9.95 / 30.42 (Standard Average Days per Month) = $0.327 Day
    • Determine hourly rate: $0.327 / 24 (standard hours per day) = $0.0136
    • Determine compensation rate: $0.0136 * 2 (rounded to nearest hour) * 3 (compensation rate)  = $0.08
  2.  Scenario #2:
    – Monthly reseller seed customer ($19.95/month)
    – Scheduled maintenance lasting 6 hours total compensation: $0.16
    Calculations:

    • Determine daily rate: $19.95 / 30.42 (standard average days per month) = $0.655 day
    • Determine hourly rate: $0.655 / 24 (standard hours per day) = $0.0273
    • Determine compensation rate: $0.0273 * 6 (rounded to nearest hour) * 1 (compensation rate) = $0.16

Compensation Exclusions

  1. GreenGeeks SLA compensations only apply to service outages monitored and confirmed by GreenGeeks. Third Party monitoring tools are not acceptable proof of outage.
