Fault identification and resolution

Occasionally you may experience an irregularity in the way your server is operating. Our system administrators are at your disposal for investigating, diagnosing and resolving such issues.

All work is subject to standard administration charges (see below) unless the fault is found to be our responsibility. You will be provided with an estimate for the number of hours required to investigate or resolve a problem which must be approved by email prior to us commencing work.
