Introduction

This document provides basic information about Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC's technical support policies.

None of the information presented here alters any existing agreement between Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC and its customers, explicit or implied. As well, Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC reserves the right to make exceptions to the below policies in order to best serve its customers.

What is Technical Support?

Technical support is the service provided by Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC to aid hosting customers in setting up, configuring and using their hosting accounts. For example, Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC will assist customers with questions about using our control panel interface, about the best way to set up e-mail accounts, or about what hosting features/plans will help them get the most out of our services.

Technical support does not include support for maintaining the content or functionality of your website (even sites developed by Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC). Support for problems with content or functionality should be addressed to your Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC staff representative, and may require billable time. Technical support does not include in-depth consulting or instruction on how to configure or use third-party software (including desktop software like FTP programs or e-mail reading programs) or local office/home network troubleshooting (such as problems that prevent you from connecting to the Internet).

If you require support for activities not covered under Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC's support policies, Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC has a wide variety of service and support contracts available. Contact us for details.

Support Hours and Request Procedures

Non-emergency technical support is provided during the hours of 9 AM to 6 PM EST, Monday through Friday. Support requests should be initiated by telephone to 941-548-1322 or by using our contact form.

Emergency technical support for critical problems affecting the core functionality of services hosted at Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC is provided on a 24-hour, 365-day call-back basis. Out-of-hours support can be requested by calling our emergency support line at 941-548-6116. If you are not immediately connected with a representative, leave a message when prompted, and someone will call you back.

IMPORTANT: Please be advised that Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC constantly monitors all of its critical systems, and if there is a system-wide problem, there's a good chance we already know about it. Please do not use the emergency support procedures unless absolutely necessary.

IMPORTANT: Emergency support is billed at $180/hour with a minimum charge of $90.

This information will include a username and password that can be used to FTP files to your site. It is the user`s responsibility to configure the software being used to transfer files to the hosting account - please consult the usage manual of your software. Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC makes no guarantees about the compatibility of particular software packages with its servers or networks.

Lemon Bay Computer Service LLC will provide the account owner with an web-based administrative tool and related documentation that will facilitate the setup of POP Accounts, Aliases, Forwarding Accounts, Autoresponders, and Mailing Lists. It is the responsibility of the account owner to create, modify, delete, and maintain the mail accounts and related services according to their needs.
