Design Turtle Service Level Guarantees
30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with our hosting services, we will refund your hosting fees at any time during the first 30 days after you have signed up for an account with us. You can email us at email@example.com and receive full refund for your hosting plan within the 30-day money-back period.
Please, NOTE that domain name registrations are final and non-refundable. As changes are no longer allowed after a registration request is submitted, you should always check for correct spelling before purchasing a domain name.
Network Uptime Guarantee
Design Turtle guarantees that your website(s) will be up and running at least 99.9% of the time during any 12-month period. This guarantee includes network and server uptime. However, we cannot be held responsible for upstream problems outside of our network and areas where Design Turtle has no direct influence, such as backbone provider failures, fiber-optic main line cuts, DNS or Registrar problems with subscribers’ domain names, routing problems between a client’s location and our data center. The uptime guarantee is also not applicable if the service interruption was caused by a natural or unnatural event that is not directly under the control (or jurisdiction) of Design Turtle. Design Turtle may temporarily deny or terminate the Service upon client’s failure to pay their charges at due time.
Design Turtle guarantees 99.9% network uptime and server stability. This, however, does not refer to problems stemming from:
a. Server Hardware Breakdown.
b. User error(s) or purposeful interruption(s) (e.g. if the client shuts his/her own server down, Design Turtle is not responsible for the downtime).
c. Failures due to software that is not explicitly supported by Design Turtle. Consequently, if a hardware crash provoked by the customer happens, Design Turtle has no responsibility for the resulting downtime.
Network Outages or Unexpected Downtime is any unplanned or unexpected interruption in the network availability due to hardware, software, network connectivity or data center problem, during which a 100% packet loss is experienced.
Scheduled Downtime is any scheduled interruption of the services for the purpose of network software/hardware upgrades, or replacement of any network equipment in order to be provided better service for the customers. Scheduled downtimes occur within pre-notified downtime periods, with as many warnings as possible sent via e-mail or posted in our news section minimum 24-hour in advance.
