Frequently asked questions

What happens during initial consultation?

Each server is unique. Many settings like resource limits, network settings, security controls, etc. vary from one server to another. Any of these can affect the successful execution of a solution. Inadvertent changes to any of these settings can result in extended downtime.

That is why we take extra care to study the various limits within your server before we even design or implement a solution. All that happens during initial consultation. This process usually lasts 1 hour.

In many cases, such as mail error resolution or web server recovery, the solution would involve only a settings change and testing. Such solutions can be quickly implemented, and would be covered in the initial consultation.

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 $90, or if you’re a Bobcares member, $60.

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 extend 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.
