Network availability is defined as the Company’s network’s ability to pass incoming and outgoing TCP/IP traffic. A server’s unavailability caused by network unavailability is not included in server uptime. Interruptions of service due to problems on the backbone or on the Client’s portion of the network are beyond the Company’s control and are not included in uptime calculations. Interruptions of service caused by denial of service or similar attacks are beyond the Company’s control and are not included in uptime calculations.
The ScaleWP server backbone is provided by Digital Ocean. The service is also covered by Digital Ocean’s SLA available for download here:
To guarantee optimal performance of the servers, the Company will perform maintenance on the servers on a routine basis. Such maintenance often requires taking Company servers off-line. Company reserves one hour of server unavailability per month for maintenance purposes. This server unavailability is not included in server uptime calculations. The maintenance typically is performed during off-peak hours. Company will provide Client with advance notice of maintenance whenever possible.
