1. Master Agreement
Webzilla and Customer may have executed an Internet Services Master Agreement (“the Master Agreement”). The parties agree that the terms and conditions of the Master Agreement govern this Support and Service Agreement (the “SLA”). In the event of a conflict between the terms of this SLA and the Master Agreement, the Master Agreement shall control. Capitalized terms used in this SLA shall have the same meaning as in the Master agreement and vice versa unless otherwise defined herein. Any use of the Webzilla services by Customer constitutes acceptance of this Agreement.
2. Service Level Agreement
2.1 Customer is responsible for maintaining Customer’s Equipment, whether legal property of Webzilla or Customer.
2.2 Subject to the chosen SLA level by Customer and the procedures defined in this SLA, Webzilla shall provide the support services described in this SLA to Customer’s Equipment (“SLA Support”).
2.3 Customer may also request Webzilla to perform support outside of the SLA or certain additional support services (the “Additional Support”) described in this SLA at Webzilla’s then current rates.
2.4 Webzilla shall not charge Customer for SLA Support and/or Additional Support utilized to remedy any event or condition caused by Webzilla’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

2.5 Webzilla may decline a Customer request to perform Additional Support in Webzilla’s sole discretion, in which case the performance of such services shall be Customer’s sole responsibility. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Webzilla may withhold its approval of Customer’s performance of certain services in Webzilla’s sole discretion if such services are unavailable at the relevant Datacenter or if Webzilla and/or Customer are otherwise prohibited from performing such services at the Datacenter.
3. Service Availability
3.1 Webzilla shall use commercially best efforts to provide 99.99% Services availability. Services availability is calculated by the number of hours the service is available to customers plus the total number of hours, if any, the service is scheduled to be unavailable, divided by the total number of hours in that month.
In the event that there is no services availability, Webzilla will credit the following month’s service fee as follows:
Customer Services Availability Credit
- 99.9% to 99.98%: 5% credit
- 95% to 99.8%: 25% credit
- 90% to 94.9%: 50% credit
- 89.9% or below: 100% credit
In order for the Customer to receive a credit on his account, Customer must request such credit within seven (7) business days after he experienced no Services availability. Customer must request credit by sending an electronic mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For security, the body of this message must contain Customer’s server ID, the dates and times of the unavailability of Customer’s services, and such other customer identification requested by Webzilla. Credits will usually be applied within sixty (60) days of Customer’s credit request. Credit to Customer’s account will be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy in the event that there is no Services availability. Credits will not be provided to Customer in the event that Customer has no Services.
Availability resulting from:
a) Scheduled maintenance: i) as posted from time to time at webzilla.com and/or ii) via direct contact from Webzilla to Customer;
b) Customer’s behavior or the performance or failure of Customer’s equipment, facilities or applications, or circumstances beyond Webzilla’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body; war; insurrection; sabotage; embargo; fire; flood; strike or other labor disturbance; interruption of or delay in transportation; unavailability of, interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services (including DNS propagation); failure of third-party software or hardware; or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in, or equipment needed for, the provision of the services.

Webzilla shall notify Customer of the suspension and its justification therefore as soon as practicable after the commencement of the suspension.
