Support Priority Levels

Our support gets categorized into 3 levels:

Critical Support

Critical support incidents include the stability of the site and hosting environment. These support incidents are always given top priority. This includes and is not limited to the following:

  • Hardware
  • Availability of server or site (site is down)
  • DNS issues related to the server

Issues related to a client’s ISP, network, or hardware issues are not covered.

NOTE: After hours critical issues should get submitted via email. We check this email on a regular basis. Critical incidents will get immediate attention.

Non-Critical Support

Non-Critical support is for issues related to client maintained sites. This includes, and is not limited to the following:

  • Troubleshooting editing issues
  • Resetting of passwords
  • Provision of resources that may be beneficial to the client

Since these are non-critical in nature, we address them in the order they come in. Any outstanding ‘critical issues’ will have priority. We make every effort to resolve or provide a suitable workaround the same business day.

Care Level Support

Care level support covers changes and updates on a pre-existing care plan. This includes and is not limited to:

  • Updates to site software
  • New posts
  • Page updates

All other care services will also fall under this level of support.

These are also generally non-critical in nature. As such, any outstanding ‘critical issues’ will still have priority. We make every effort to resolve or provide a suitable workaround the same business day. For large changes, we will assign a timeline to manage the project.
