Frequently asked questions

What happens during initial consultation?

Our priority in Emergency Administration is to restore failed services as soon as possible. This could include server reboots, file system fixing, database recovery, and more.

The service recovery usually happens within the initial 1 hour. During this time, we analyze log files, trace processes and more to find why the server faced an issue in the first place. We then identify a solution to prevent this issue from happening again in the future.

In many cases (such as database repair), the permanent fix also gets implemented within this 1 hour.

How much will it cost for my work to be done?
Many of the common issues such as error resolution, web/database recovery, etc. takes only about 1-2 hours to complete. This equates to a maximum $120, or if you’re a Bobcares member, $90.

However, it’s important to note that each server has its own unique configuration, and the complexity of the issue can vary from one server to another.

So, the exact extent of the work on your server can be more or less than the average time estimate. To prevent cost-overruns, we work on 30-minute increments if the work isn’t finished during first 1 hour (during the initial consultation).

If you need more details, please contact us.

Can investigation and fixes be clubbed?
Yes. For example, if we take 20 minutes to investigate, and 40 minutes to fix, we will bill you for only for 1 hour.
Can I rollover the remaining minutes from my hours?
No, because we bill in increments of one hour. But you may club multiple tasks together.
What happens if I have hours left over?
You get credits for hours remaining. You may use them anytime within 1 year.
How long do my hours remain valid?
They remain for up to 1 year. Many of our customers pre-pay for hours and use them as and when they need them.
