Uptime refers to the percentage of time a web hosting server is operational and accessible. A higher uptime indicates better reliability, ensuring your website remains available to users without disruption. It’s usually expressed as a percentage, such as 99.9% or 99.99% uptime.
Web hosting providers often offer uptime guarantees, which means they commit to maintaining a specific uptime percentage. They may offer compensation or credits towards your hosting fees if they fail to meet this guarantee.
Downtime can negatively impact your website’s reputation, user experience, and search engine rankings, so choosing a web host with a strong uptime guarantee is essential.
