Yes, and for each hour they are down they will credit your account for a free month
That's all good for saving a few dollars, but if your site is down then it's down.
same as some airlines if a flight is cancelled they give you a free flight later etc, but you've still missed your appointment haven't you? you've missed a deal, a funeral, a wedding.

your site is down you've potentially missed a huge sale, you've lost or put out customers that depend on you, you've not been able to keep your promise to your users. you may get a "whole free month" from microsoft (or amazon, google...) but does that mean because of your 100, 1000, 10000 clients missing out you then give them a free month?

failure is failure, for some the token recompense is OK, but for some it's really not good enough. they need to have their fail-over servers, connections, sites etc.

1 month free from [pick-your-multi-billion-dollar-provider], woohoo NOT!

They've suckered you into a for them [let's face it] zero cost "response" to their failure
...AND passed the true FULL cost and FULL responsibility for THEIR failure ON YOU.

Yeah I know everywhere is the same, just saying the "1 month for 1 hour" is in reality no better than those that give you nothing.
