Any host promising 100% up time is lying. A server is gonna eventually go down.

99.9% is achievable but not 100%.

Most hosts that promise 100% have in their terms that hardware failures and scheduled maint is not considered down time. Lol.

All hosts needs to do maintenance sometimes then it can't be 100% uptime.

Do not look for a host that offer unlimited plans (you might think it's good for you but it's not), your business website will be slow and not stable (not good for your clients) because other users on the server can abuse the server resources. Look for a host that is limiting you on server resources, this ensures that the server runs fast and stable.

I would also recommend to stay away from a host that gives you SSH access and host that will open firewall ports on demands.

I agree that 100% uptime is rarely available even i had not seen any hosting provider with this, but still i love hostgator as they provide 99.99% uptime and i had never faced any downtime till now in 2 months of blogging

Quite often that is true. And then they have problems for a few days in a row. It is important to recall "average" means combined over time. Don't dump a good host who has a good service record when the "average" come to realization all at once.

No one provides the promised 100% uptime... Same for the 99,9%
I had a lot of problems with hostgator. I have used them for 2 years now. They are really slow with tickets sent to them. I have waited for 2-3 days to solve my problem.
Now I have switched to an A class hosting for wordpress and till now I am having no problems, it works best for my SEO project. You can find more info here [removed] I don't know if I am allowed to post links, if I am not, the moderator can edit the post.

100% uptime does not necessarily mean the sites on that server were usable all the time.

Monitoring services can be deceptive. They only way to know if your site is up is to load a page.

Statistics can change a bit if the website owner is inclined to upload no. of downloadable pdf reports or may be brochures. They will consume both considerable disk space and bandwidth in comparision to other elements of web. And some providers in shared environment do allow it. General trend is upto the limit of 10MB. Few allow above such limit as well.

Funny how a lot get mixed up between 99.9% and 99.99% - there is a difference

Well, I just wanted to comment on the 100% uptime guarantee, it doesn't' matter if you have a small blog or a big business website, the uptime monitoring should be your own responsibility. I suggest setting uptime, check every one minute at least with tools like Pingdom.

And for the web hosting promises, sometimes I found 100% uptime for 4 months or so, however, there should be a few times where the server is down for a minute or two (if you're lucky). However, some premium quality cloud hosting provider like Liquid Web, Google, etc... Have nearly the 100% uptime. Ok, if we talk about 5 minutes downtime for a full year, that's not an issue if you have no eCommerce website.

So, what I strongly recommend, is to have a cloud server with multiple IP and load balancer, then, make sure you test the site configurations and have a CDN. That can decrease the risk of downtime as the server will work smoothly without being overloaded with files, images, static text etc...
