Dynamic Hosting understands the importance of network availability to our customers. Thus we are making commitments to our customers in the form of a Service Level Agreement (SLA). We have developed the following SLA to ensure our customers receive maximum performance and value for their patronage.
Dynamic Hosting was the first Canadian hosting provider to introduce a network uptime money back guarantee of 99.999% (excluding scheduled maintenance outages). We continue to offer this guarantee because we are able to consistently achieve exceptionally high server uptimes that are second to no other provider in the industry. If our network availability does not meet our 99.999% uptime guarantee, credit will be made available to any client upon request, not to exceed 50% of their base monthly fee. Network uptime includes all network infrastructure including routers and switches but does not include services or software running on the client's server. Network downtime exists when a particular customer is unable to send or receive data from a server and such failure is recorded until the server is able to send and receive data again, as confirmed by a third party monitoring system like Alertra.com. The guarantee only applies to our UNIX server plans. If a client is experiencing network connectivity issues with their own Internet Service Provider (ISP) Dynamic Hosting can not be held responsible.
In order to receive credit the client must submit an email to [email protected] within 7 days of the outage. The date and approximate time must be included in the email. Once Dynamic Hosting confirms the outage, a credit will be applied with in two business days.
Server Hardware Guarantee
This section of our SLA is included within the server contract signed by the client.
Dynamic Hosting provides you with technical support on setup of your account, ftp access, and other server related issues free of charge. Dynamic Hosting does not provide support for web applications, scripts, or components from third parties or developed by you. These services can be provided at reasonable rates. To inquire, call our toll free number (1.866.567.8464). Dynamic Hosting's Technical Support Department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year and is available by E-mail at [email protected] (Note: there is no telephone technical support for customers on the 'Buck A Month' and 'Economy package' hosting plans. See SLA exception #11 for more details). Company's standard response time to technical support issues is one hour. This time, however, depends on the complexity of the inquiry and workload in general. The Technical Support Department assigns the highest priority to customer inquiries related to the servers' unavailability. These issues are addressed immediately upon receiving e-mail notification from a customer. All inquiries regarding Company billing for its services should be sent to [email protected] All inquiries regarding reselling Company's services, purchasing of new accounts, and available discounts should be addressed to [email protected]
If You are dissatisfied with DynamicHosting.biz's Shared Web Hosting Service or if you are unable to resolve a technical support issue within the parameters outlined in this Service Level Agreement please contact DynamicHosting.biz's Customer Support Manager at [email protected] regarding your concerns. The Customer Support Manager will review your concerns, investigate, and respond to your request within two business days. As issues may be complex or require extensive investigation, this two business day response time does not imply that a resolution is guaranteed within two business days.
Dynamic Hosting will not retain any of your data after account termination. All data is deleted from the servers at the time the account is terminated. Requests to provide data after account termination require extensive manual efforts and will be billed at our billable rate. Dynamic Hosting must receive payment for this service before any data is supplied.
All payment terms are 30 days NET from the invoice due date as specified on each invoice, with the exception of domain name renewals or registrations/transfers. Domain name payment is due prior to any renewal date, and no domain name will be transferred or registered prior to payment. In the case that these terms are not met, Dynamic Hosting reserves the right to suspend, cancel, or terminate any or all services provided to the customer. If a payment is attempted and is declined, or otherwise fails (eg. bounced cheques, or insufficient funds), Dynamic Hosting reserves the right to charge a $50 administration fee which is due along with the initial amount. If service is suspended, both the initial invoice amount as well as the administration fee are due prior to having service re-instated.

We do not set limits on the disk space and bandwidth (data transfer) that we provide in plans that are marked “Unlimited”. We want you to have the resources available to you to build a great online presence. Even though we want you to succeed, we need to ensure that we’re providing all of our customers with optimum service. As such we do require all of our customers to be fully compliant with our Excessive Resource User Policy/Terms of Service and utilize disk space and bandwidth related to normal operation of a personal or small business website. If a customer’s hosting account is found to have violated the client content, excessive resource user policy and/or is storing files for archiving purposes, reselling, or other prohibited use, the contents will be removed and while we make best effort to contact customers before hand, can occur without notice.
Excessive Resource User Policy.
Resources are defined as disk space, bandwidth, and/or computing resources (cpu, memory, disk i/o, # of files/inodes) utilization. Dynamic Hosting offers a shared hosting service in which environment customers may share resources with other customers, therefore it is imperative that Dynamic Hosting control any excessive usage by customers so that they do not disrupt the service quality of other customers using the same resources. A hosting account is considered using “Excessive amounts of resources” when it consumes 100% of 1 CPU core, and/or 1 GB Memory, 20 concurrent connections and/or 20,000 files also known as “Computing Resources”, and/or “Resources”, and/or “Resource Usage”. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems, including but not limited to: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. To prevent service disruption for other customers, a hosting account which exceeds the included computing resources will be slowed down automatically for as long as the resources are being overused. Dynamic Hosting will make every reasonable effort to notify customer prior to suspension, however,Dynamic Hosting may suspend any offending hosting account prior to notifying the customer of the account in the event that service disruption to other customers was/is caused. The customer whom is using “excessive resources” may be asked to upgrade his/her package to a more suitable hosting package, such as but not limited to a premium account, virtual private server or dedicated server.Dynamic Hosting will be the sole and final arbitrator as to what constitutes as a violation of this policy.
