Any tasks not identified as being inclusive (free), are deemed chargeable and will be billed by-the-minute as per our standard hourly fees for in office hours support, and emergency rates for out of hours support. Some examples of the types of requests which are chargeable are:

If you suspect a server-side fault causing your issue, you must first conduct the necessary due diligence to rule out your application/configuration/code being at fault. If we investigate the issue following a support request and identify the issue is caused by your application/configuration/code (ie. not a server-side issue), then the time spent on such will be chargeable.
