Is there a huge difference between 99.9% uptime to 99.5% uptime ? Is there a way to translate this to how many times a site can go down in a month? If there is a link, someone please post the link for me to read.

0.09% works out to be 48 minutes per month (month of 30 days), if that is correct the terms 99.9% and 99.5% give the following results
99.9% uptime >> maximum 48 minutes downtime per month
99.5% uptime >> maximum 240 minutes (4 hours) per month
The difference is quite a lot when you see actual figures like that

Agreed, while 99.5% may not seem bad, its a actually a lot of time.
Usually hosts that offer 99.5% uptime, use that guarantee because they cannot or do not believe they can actually hold the 99.9% for the months to come.

A good host is one who can provide >99% uptime per month
