Frequently Asked Questions
We do not invoice for the following issues:
- Website/server downtime through no fault of client's
- Critical website transactions not functioning properly through no fault of the client’s
- Please note if something changed on client-side beyond our control, these types of issues may sometimes be billed as "break-fix" if applicable.
- Additionally, if your website is experiencing ongoing issues due to age we will advise you of a plan to modernize the items in your tech stack, which might require billable time and support.
If your site is experiencing these issues, please fill out a support ticket right away.
We strive to acknowledge every request the same business day it is received. Requests that arrive during nights or weekends are typically addressed the next business morning. When we respond to acknowledge that your request is in our hands, we’ll typically inform you of the next steps and any anticipated timelines or costs.
Our turn around times vary based on the nature of the related request. For requests that are simple in nature, we rarely take more than 3 business days to deliver the full solution. Quick fixes are typically performed by the end of the next business day. For more complex challenges or requests, we’ll get in touch to make a plan and manage expectations with you. Our average turnaround time for support desk requests is under 24 hours.
We strive to keep your site healthy, but there are certain issues we cannot fix for you "on the house" because otherwise billable time and expertise from our team is necessary. These include:
- Work done to the site post-launch by client, third party or amateur developers (these are typically billed as break-fix).
- Timely content management or edits non-retainer or non-GDD clients (these are quoted and billed as enhancements).
- For relatively minor requests, it is always best to email our help desk email address or utilize our support form. We strive to provide telephone support even during extended hours but the core team is frequently on calls, in Zoom meetings, or working under tight deadlines. So, if we miss a call our call non-technical call takers will take a message and we will correspond in a timely fashion.
Our basic hosting and maintenance plan includes:
- Website hosting
- SSL Certificate
- System-level maintenance and improvements
- Access to our Support Desk
- Website backup policy and infrastructure.
Website hosting and maintenance does not include:
- Content management or edits
- Supplemental design or development work
- Instant accessibility for non-emergencies
When you request hands-on support the first thing we do is triage it into one of the four areas in our chart above (urgent, bug, break-fix, or enhancement). Then, our support team will review the request and provide a quick estimate usually just via email, based on our judgment.
The vast majority of our support requests take 1 hour or less. If our estimate requires any more than an hour or two we will typically take the time to explain further via email or a conversation.
Please note we do have a $50 per request MINIMUM that will always apply for break-fix or enhancements when staff members must go hands-on to address concerns. For this reason, we recommend batching smaller requests into a single ticket whenever possible.
