This website hosting agreement template should be used for B2B web hosting services where the agreement will be signed in hard copy by each of the parties.
The services provider must provide the hosting services to the customer and must use at least reasonable efforts to maintain the availability of the services during the term of the agreement, subject to scheduled maintenance. The customer grants to the services provider the right to store and process customer-supplied data, and gives to the services provider warranties in relation to the legality of that data. The agreement includes personal data processing clauses to aid compliance with EU and UK data protection law (including the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR). Optional clauses cover the implementation of the hosting services, the provision of helpdesk-based support, indemnities protecting one or both parties.
The standard version of this agreement assumes that the hosting services provider will host a particular website or websites, rather than providing hosting capacity; the premium version, by contrast, assumes that the customer will be given access to hosting resources and will have some freedom to choose how to use those resources. In addition to the clauses in the standard agreement, the premium agreement includes an availability SLA.
This document is only suitable for use in relation to the provision of hosting services to businesses. It is not suitable for B2C contracts.
