    You think 99.9% uptime on the web is good, but it actually means you are down 87 hours during one month! 99.9% uptime is nowhere close to 87 hours of downtime per month. I`m not sure how you came up with that.Andre2007-8-22 22:46:41

    First problem: HOW do you guarantee 100% up time, when you`re dealing with hardware and machines?I`d change this sentence:
    100% is not only possible it is absolutely necessary.To this:
    100% is absolutely necessary---and now it`s a guarantee.
    The reason is you don`t want to lead someone into the opposite of what you intend. The first version reads like, `100% isn`t possible."
    Hi Craig, thanks for the comment. As you mentioned the problem is how to guarantee, when its a hardware.  But its possible to try work on 100%.  To thrive for the improvement.  We want to give some tools to see where one would need to work on.  While if person says I don`t need 100%, then there`ll be no reason to use the tools.  Maybe
    100% is absolutely necessary---and now it`s possible.

    Right!  It should be around 7.5 hours.  Don`t know how I came up.  Thanks Anrde!

    By my calculations (based upon a 30 day month) 99.9% up means the actual downtime is 0.72 hours - or just a bit over 43 minutes.robertj2007-8-23 12:7:42

    Right!  It should be around 7.5 hours.  Don`t know how I came up.  Thanks Anrde!It`s much less than that. It`s not even 45 minutes of downtime/month. It`s crucial that you get that right given the service you`re offering, If someone contacted me regarding a monitoring service with those numbers, I`d question the accuracy of the stats.Also, I think you`re going about this the wrong way. As a web host, I run servers, I have monitoring services in place which alert me the moment a server or a service goes down. I also get stats to look at or display on my main site if I wish. I believe that`s all that can be expected from a monitoring service. I do not expect a monitoring service to help me achieve 100% uptime on my servers. I also think you should mention specific information in your pitch, such as the monitoring intervals, the monitoring locations and all that.Good luck, your site looks great by the way.Andre2007-8-23 13:0:3

    Thank you Andre and robertj.  Now I know I need to work on my math . 
    Andre, yes, I agree that monitoring service is not a guarantee or help you to achieve uptime.  It reports on the server performance and alerts, if there are problems.  I`ll add the monitoirng intervals, and the locations.  The reports show that we monitor every 30 min.(free version) and from US, Austria and Germany. I just thoughts that might not be crucial for the first impression. 
    Actually we also allow our community to create benchmark reports that are public.  I noticed that we have one created that shows reports on hosting providers: .html
    Do you think, it is useful for you?Gayane2007-8-24 5:35:19
