What is uptime?

The dictionary definition of uptime constitutes the time during which a piece of equipment, such as a computer, is functioning or able to function.  In terms of cloud hosting, uptime is defined as the percentage of time that your server or website is active and able to function during the course of a year.  For example, if a Cloud Server has an uptime average of 99.5%, this means that for all but 1.83 days per year, you can expect that your website/server will remain active.
