  1. PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO MANAGED SSL
    1. If Customer purchased Managed SSL and are using an SSL certificate on a website hosted by us, Company will generate and securely store a corresponding private key. For security reasons, at no time will Company release your private key, even per your request. If Customer wish to export your SSL certificate for use on a non-GoDaddy server, request a re-key of the SSL certificate – your current SSL certificate will become invalid and Company will issue a new certificate for use on your non-GoDaddy server.
  1. Company will automatically validate, issue and install the new certificate every two years for subscribing customers using our hosting products. Customers using 3rd party hosting products will be required to reinstall the new certificate after Company automatically validates and issues a new certificate. Company will alert customers when to take action via the product dashboard and email.
  1. Customers are permitted to assign a representative the authority to (1) sign and submit, or approve a certificate request on your behalf, (2) sign and submit a Subscriber Agreement on your behalf and/or (iii) to acknowledge the Terms of Use on your behalf, provided Customer acknowledge and agree that Customers are and will remain subject to and bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement.
  1. SERVICE UPTIME GUARANTEE: After your purchase of a Business Class Pro account, Customer may contact Customer Support to have your physical uptime checked no more than once within a 30-day period. If your Business Class Pro Server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.999% uptime Customer may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of InMotion Hosting, dependent upon the results of the check performed by InMotion Hosting Customer Support. Third-party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors, including the monitor’s network capacity and reliability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. If an approved downtime event is reported following a check Customer request, Customer must request your credit within one (1) week of receiving notification of such a report.
    Scheduled downtime for server maintenance is not regarded as downtime for purposes of relevance for this credit, nor is downtime caused by unavoidable acts of God, nor by third-party digital or physical attacks on InMotion Hosting servers and data centers, such as direct denial of service (DDoS) attacks, or other forms of hacking. Interruptions in service caused by Customer from custom scripting, coding or the installation of third-party applications are likewise not eligible to be counted against downtime. InMotion Hosting reserves the right to measure uptime on its own at any time.

    To request a credit, please create a ticket with our support department or email [email protected] with justification. Uptime guarantees only apply to Business Class Pro accounts not Launch or Power Plans
