We have been involved in the hosting industry since year 2002 and have seen many of our competitors come and go. Many web hosting companies failed because they are not committed to taking great care of their customers.
If a web host has nothing to lose when your site is down, then their commitment and speed in restoring your site may not be the best.
Customer shall submit all claims for OEC by email to compensation[@]littlekittle.com within three (3) business days after the LittleKittle.com server / network is available again following the server or network downtime in question. In the event of customer's failure to submit the claims within the said three (3) business days, LittleKittle.com reserves the right to reject the claims without any reasons.
The claims submitted by customers must contain the following particulars of information:
1. Customers Name 2. Client ID 3. Domain Name 4. Date and approximate period of downtime 5. Unavailability information

Upon review and findings, LittleKittle.com will inform the customers by e-mail whether the appropriate claim will be granted or rejected. If the claim is allowed, the OEC will not be reflected in the current bill, but in the following bill.
We are in the web hosting business, not the insurance business.
Our Server and Network Uptime Guarantee are in no way to be interpreted as an insurance product.
Since the maximum amount of credits that can be applied to any web hosting account is the actual amount paid by the customer per month, quarter or year then obviously it is not sufficient to "cover" any damages caused by any server or network outage.
We recognize that web sites cost money to develop, maintain and ecommerce sites can experience loss of sales and income when an outage occurs.
We do not however offer any compensation for these types of losses as stated in our Terms of Service. While we do perform daily backups on all servers, it is the customer's responsibility to maintain their own site backups on their local computers at all times and if deemed necessary, obtain insurance products from reputable insurance providers to cover any loss of business or sales.
LittleKittle.com reserves the right to make any modifications, amendments, revisions or changes to this Server Uptime and Network Uptime Guarantee at any time. Customer will be notified prior to any changes or variation to Server Uptime and Network Uptime Guarantee.
