Algarve web support
In the Algarve, web support can be a problem. Dynafish offer Algarve web support, with either a monthly support contract or via a simple PAYG system.
If you have a site hosted by us, your web hosting fee covers issues with your site admin systems, your email server and web server. Please see below for full details of what is and isn’t covered by your hosting fee.
We offer two options for web site support: a monthly support contract which revolves around an agreed monthly fee which covers a certain number of hours support during a month, and a simple pay-as-you-go system.
All support is run via our support ticket system. Each support request is assigned a unique ticket number which you can use to track the progress and responses online. For your reference we provide complete archives and history of all your support requests. You create a ticket simply by emailing our support address, and you can monitor your tickets by visiting the support site.
We provide each client with an online timesheet where you can monitor the hours worked. This is worked in conjunction with the support ticket system.
Support requests are normally actioned between 16:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday. We can provide extended support hours to support contract holders, by arrangement.
Monthly support contract
We agree with you a certain number of hours per month (there is a minimum agreement of 3 hours/month). Support contract hours are charged at a discounted hourly rate.
We keep a note of support hours (in 15 minute segments) and then at the end of the month we total these up. 50% of any unused time in a month can be rolled over for use in the next month (but not after that), and any additional hours worked above and beyond those available are charged at this same rate. Support contract charges are in advance, with additional hours charged with the next period.
If you wish, support hours can also be used for new development.
