ITXS's standard response time to technical support issues is within four hours. This response time depends on the complexity of the inquiry and support request volume.
The Technical Support Department assigns the highest priority to customer inquiries related to the servers unavailability or emergency faults. These issues are addressed first upon notification from a customer. Emergency faults will be answered after office hours (weekends, evening, night, holiday)

  • Virtual Machine & Associated Infrastructure Down Faults
  • Packet Loss
  • Routing Issues
  • Emergency faults covers virtual machine down and networking faults only and doesn't cover operating system / software / applications or associated issues. ITXS may reclassify any issues misclassified as falling into one of the emergency categories listed above, and such issues will not qualify for emergency treatment.

Scheduled Maintenance

To maximize optimal performance and security of the servers, ITXS will perform routine maintenance on the servers on a regular basis, requiring servers to be removed from service.
This server unavailability will not be included in server uptime calculations. The maintenance is typically performed during off-peak hours.
A minimum of 48 hours notification of maintenance will be provided except where maintenance is considered to be critical.
Notifications will be provided via the customer portal


ITXS's primary commitment is to provide outstanding online services to all customers. To support this commitment, ITXS observes the following schedule of remedies for any failure to meet the express guarantees in this Service Level Agreement.
ITXS guarantees at least 99.95% uptime availability (including VPS, network, hosting, mail, storage, ...) for all services. Uptime refers to the amount of time that the services are available. This uptime is measured only by ITXS's internal monitoring.

  • Network Availability is defined as the ability to pass incoming and outgoing TCP/IP traffic through ITXS's network.
  • Application (Web) Server Availability is defined as the ability to retrieve the HTTP headers from the hosting server.
  • Mail Server Availability is defined as the ability to retrieve the SMTP, POP and IMAP headers from the mail server.
  • Data Backup Server Availability is defined as the ability to send and retrieve data from the hosting server.

A virtual machine (VPS) is considered available when it is:

  • Powered on; or ready to power on in the customer portal;
  • Able to access data stores associated with the virtual machine;
  • Connected to the virtual switch and able to pass packets between the virtual switch and the virtual machine

Virtual machine availablity does not include downtime caused by any software running on the virtual machine, including such software as operating system software, application software or any other software that runs on the virtual machine.

Storage Capacity / Data Transfer

Each account is allotted storage capacity and data transfer amounts on ITXS servers according to the plan and options selected by you. This storage size and data transfer allotments can be increased by request for an additional fee. The servers may stop accepting, processing, or delivering data when the purchased limit is reached thus causing server unavailability or data loss. ITXS shall not be held responsible for such unavailability or data losses.

Data Integrity

ITXS employs sophisticated RAID techniques to ensure the integrity of the data on its servers; the data is written to two or more disks simultaneously to prevent data loss in the event of hardware failure. ITXS performs routine server backups for disaster recovery purposes only. Server backup scope and scheduling is at ITXS's sole discretion.

Data Retention

ITXS shall not be responsible for retaining any your data after account termination. All data is deleted from the servers after the account is terminated and from back-ups during scheduled backup rotation. ITXS shall not restore, provide on any storage media or send out any data pertaining to
existing or terminated accounts unless agreed to by ITXS.
