Managed Service Level Agreement
Choosing a hosting provider is never easy and it seems to be risky when your site is at stake. We know

something that we take seriously. That's why we have one of the most aggressive Service Level Agreement

IHSYSTEM's SLA is a contract between you, the customer, and IHSYSTEM. It defines the terms of our
responsibilities and the money back guaranty if our responsibilities are not met. We want our customers
to feel at ease with their decision to move their site to IHSYSTEM, and knowing that IHSYSTEM takes
your site's uptime as seriously as you do is imperative.
IHSYSTEM SLA covers three components that support the availability of
