    AXISHOST - no support response over 14 hours

    I've posted in the ticket system, got the automated email reply and that has resulted in no reply.

    They have a "due" date of this morning and a few hours ago, I added to the ticket (two hours after the due date) and still nothing.

    Tina fall of the planet or something? I've not had problems in the past - and this one happens to be with a client who has my IM and has been bugging me all day.

    I upgraded from the servermatrix people because I wanted support, reliable support. At least they had a number to call, I don't see one on the site to call and I'm left dealing with this...

    At ~$150/month, I'd hope for some sort of managed support... (lightweight dedicated server w/management option)

    Kaos,

    Our IS/IT network staff is on call 24/7/365 to make sure your online presence stays...ONLINE.
    As they say they have 24/7 support you should be expecting a response within an hour at most: But at 5 dollars a day for a server I'm not entirely certain what you're expecting for your money (or lack thereof).

    From this I am assuming you updated the ticket you opened, which will likely only delay the response. If you have a ticket open and reply to it, most ticket systems would automatically drop the ticket back to the end of the queue. This means that while your ticket has been open for 14 hours, it could only be about 7 hours on their end since it was last updated.

    As I've said quite a few times in response to you mentioning this, 24/7 support does not mean someone is sitting there 24/7 just waiting to take your, and only your support issues. If there are 2 people working with an average resolution time of 20 minutes per ticket, just 6 tickets would result in a wait time of more than 1 hour for any other tickets that came in. Just because those people waited more than an hour for a response does not change the fact that there was people there 24/7 providing support.

    this is the issue with companies who offer low prices! Expect a low support service too.

    Well, I did check the due time and it didn't change - so I'm hoping I didn't bump myself to the end of the list.

    In any case, just how much money does one have to spend in order to get reliable support? Is it too much to ask that people deliver what they say they will? I'm already looking for another host and upgrading the service support, but honestly, I only use support occassionally, while it is $5/day, I haven't needed support for weeks, perhaps in the 7 months there, 6 times (beyond getting it setup - which I think I paid for) so 7x30x$5 is $1050 for 6 support issues and $450 worth of unmanaged dedicated servers. That is about $100 an incident. Don't think it is too much to ask for a little service for $100 an incidient.

    As long as you updated it, chances are that it dropped back to the end of the queue, you would very likely not be able to tell if it had from looking at your end.

    Your calculations would be correct if they weren't providing hardware, power or anything else. Also factor in that they need support to be working 24/7 just incase, even if nobody is using it support still costs them money. I'm not saying anything about the price you are paying, just trying to show why your payment doesn't work out as $100 per incident.

    Overall how has your service been? If this is an isolated incident, then you shouldnt be too quick to jump the gun.

    Yup - this was totally my fault. His ticket had a similar subject/title to another ticket that came in around the same time and I stupidly assumed it was a duplicate ticket. I didn't catch it until he replied to the ticket. HUGE apologies to the OP (already told him in private as well). For what its worth, this is not typical of our response times.

    Thanks. Our admin got stuck at the airport last night and I'd been handling stuff that normally gets passed to him. I can't believe I made such a stupid mistake...okay, yes I can.
