Maxihost Support and Operations teams work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, ensuring that all requests from customers are answered on time.

Aiming to provide greater predictability and reliability in customer support, our tickets are divided into four categories:

  • Low priority: Requests that do not present any type of risk or interference of the services;
  • Normal: Requests reporting problems that have minimal impact on the operation or production of our customers services. Non-emergencial operating system problems also fit into this group;
  • High priority: Requests reporting individual downtime, which partially impact the customers operation;
  • Urgent: Any failures that have total and direct impact on the production environment and operation of the customer or the infrastructure itself. These have shorter intervals between the updates and special attention from our entire team.

Every request sent by our customers are handled in parallel by our analysts — the SLA only represents the maximum response time.

Deadlines are described on the table below. You can also check some examples of situations that fit into each category:
