Go Media Service Level Agreement
Go Media extends Amazon’s World Class Service Level Agreement with complete Managed Hosting and System Administration. Go Media’s SLA is provided to all AWS accounts that are in good standings. Your SLA remains in effect for as long as your account remains active. This includes, but is not limited to:
24/7 Uptime Monitoring
Every website we host is added to our uptime monitoring system. It includes automatic alerts in the event of application failure or latency.
Suspicious Activity Monitoring
Website and Email traffic is filtered through an advanced algorithm monitoring for suspicious activity. This service alerts our team of anything flagged as unusual. System administrators are immediately assigned for physical monitoring and tracking until a resolution is made.
PCI Compliance (Advanced eCommerce Plans Only)
Through our partners at Trustwave, the leading online security and risk assessment company, Go Media strives each and every month to maintain PCI DSS Compliance. As everyone is aware, cyber security is a full time job and the threats are constantly evolving. Our team works hard to secure and patch any issues uncovered by Trustwave’s award winning compliance tests. Tests are run quarterly or sooner based on threat levels measured by internet security professionals. To learn more, visit https://www.trustwave.com/pci-dss-compliance/
Daily, Weekly and Monthly automatic backups known as Elastic Block Store Snapshots are generated and moved to another datacenter in another region of the Amazon infrastructure. In the event of catastrophic failure, 100% of your data and files up to the moment of the disaster minus the time since the previous night’s backup will have been copied and secured at another location. Our engineers are trained in rapid deployment of our hosting environments and will resurrect all services in another data center. All infrastrcuture services are designed for high availability.
Automatic & Manual Updates
All software running on our Cloud Instances are constantly evaluated for updates and other improvements. Most updates are performed seamlessly without requiring a notice to our clients. In the event of a scheduled maintenance window where a restart is required, you will be provided a notice to anticipate any downtime. Because you are on a managed service, Go Media takes full responsibility to restore all services to complete operational state as part of maintenance windows. It is rare that any action will ever be needed on your part.
Plesk Control Panel
Most of our LAMP hosting environments come complete with the Plesk Control Panel. Plesk makes it easy for you to manage basic website hosting services such as your Databases, Email, Applications and other personal account settings.
Thanks to our automatic monitoring alerts, we typically know about any downtime before you do. Our system administrators are on call 24/7 to handle any system alerts that may come in. If you ever need personal assistance, you can reach us anytime.
