None of Web Telecom Services hosting solutions come with a money-back guarantee policy. Additionally, the vendor does not commit to an uptime network guarantee.
Support service is available via telephone, email or by sending them a message through a ticketing system. That said, this hosting firm does not have live chat support and the technical support staff is not available 24/7.
I sent them an email query and received a response almost 30 hours later.
