You can contact HostClick’s customer support team via telephone, live chat, or email. The vendor is yet to avail a ticketing system on its website. It’s technical support is not available 24/7 and takes very long, if at all, to respond to customer queries. Mine was one of those queries that received no reply.
HostClick has yet to put up a knowledge base on its website either.
