MahiHost support service is available via telephone, telephone or live chat. You can also send them a message through a contact form available on its websites. That said, the hosting company does not seem to have a ticketing system. All the same, my email query to this vendor’s support team went unanswered.
The knowledgebase link provided on this vendor’s website pages is invalid. All the same, the vendor does have a knowledgebase section, but it takes quite an extensive search to find it.
