We try to make your work with the technical support of AdvantA.org the most productive, efficient and enjoyable, and also save our common time.
Please specify the number of your order and the tariff plan at the requests.
In the case of technical problem specify in every detail its description, after what actions it occurs, also provide access data (URL, login and password) to the Control Panel.
Please add the access data (login and password) to the Billing Panel when writing about financial questions.
During all the time we have been collecting the base of frequently asked questions and answers to them.
E-Mail*. The primary way of communication. Issues of any importance and complexity are solved via e-mail. All requests are recorded in the help desk and have their own number. When answering by e-mail (support@, sales@, ceo@) do not quote a conversation, as it is already saved in our database and available to the operator to view. Answers cluttered with quotations of existing text will remain without any attention. Do not create multiple requests (tickets) on the same issue, and respect our common time.
If necessary, the priority of the ticket in the help desk is exposed by employees of AdvantA.org. The highest priorities are allowed only in emergency hazardous problems (virus detection, Trojans, spam mailings, hacking of websites, etc.) and for clients located on VIP service. An independent wrong choice of the highest priorities is regarded as a high-priority request of non-standard technical support (notification are sent to duty officer via ICQ and/or SMS).
ICQ/ Skype**. It was introduced in order to answer to individual questions that do not require any additional actions, and only when status is "Online". Please do not disturb if the status "Busy", "Do not disturb" etc.
Do not write sentences like "How are you?" "Can I ask a question?", "Hi, are you here?" etc., go directly to the issue, and also turn off the SPAM-filter of messages.
Phone**. Pre-sales and financial issues.
* Typically we response to the request by e-mail in 24 hours (CEO checks his mail once a week), but the real time of our answer is from 0 to 24 hr, (depending on the complexity of the problem etc.). Sending emails to several e-mail addresses, duplicating texts to ICQ or on the forum - this is a wonderful chance to remain unanswered.
** Solving problems via ICQ and phone is not guaranteed.
Do not ask questions "why", "for what" etc. if we ask you to make something. The answer is simple: "it is necessary".
Regardless of the severity of your problem, mental health, etc. it is prohibited to contact our staff in the rough or the expressive form using offensive language or swear words.
Unjustified (for example, the desire to "talk about life", etc.) treatment can cause stopping of providing services.
Learn carefully the list of services for your tariff plan, and do not require the provision of those that are absent.
The installation and/or configuration of scripts (forums, guestbooks, message boards, etc.) is made by the client.
A non-standard technical support, which includes the installation and/or configuration of described above scripts, additional modules or programs that are not included in the common server software, personal settings of the account with "exotic" scripts, works on the server connected with the activity of the client, etc. is carried out at additional cost – 2100 RUB per an hour (minimum 1 hour).
