i) Customer Support
It has been the goal of EACdirectory since its founding to provide top-quality customer support and satisfaction. This section clarifies our role in providing a web hosting service.
There are various features such as ASP, ODBCs, PHP, etc. that we provide to our users. Due to the complex nature of supporting such services, we are unable to support users in learning how to take advantage of them. Our support team will ensure that the settings are correct on our servers, but we may be unable to assist users in setting up their own files and applications.
At the discretion of EACdirectory, we are able to provide some advanced support services. Depending on the scale and complexity of the work, a support fee may apply, with details provided on application.
