There are several ways to touch base with the web hosting company whose services you’re using, but the one that you’ll invariably find regardless of which company you opt for is a trouble ticket system. It is the easiest medium of correspondence for many reasons. In the event that no technical support staff member is available at the moment and they’re all occupied, a telephone call may not be answered, but a ticket will invariably hit home. Additionally, you can copy ‘n’ paste extensive bits of information without the need to worry about typos, and in case a certain issue requires more time to be resolved or a number of replies need to be exchanged, all the info will be in the very same place, so each party can always see the steps taken by the other one. The negative side of using tickets to touch base with your web hosting provider is that they’re often separate from the hosting platform, so if you have to supply information or to adhere to guidelines, you will have to use at least two separate systems and this number may rise if you want to administer a number of domain names. Furthermore, lots of hosting companies reply to tickets after several hours, or even once in every twenty four hours, and for you as a client, this simply means wasted time whilst awaiting a reply.
