If you’ve purchased a hosting plan and you have some queries about a specific function/feature, or in case you have bumped into a certain complication and you need assistance, you should be able to contact the respective support staff. All web hosts deploy a ticketing system irrespective of whether they provide other methods of contacting them along with it or not, because of the fact that the easiest way to fix an issue most often is to send a ticket. This mode of communication makes the responses sent by both parties easy to follow and allows the support staff members to escalate the case in case, for instance, a sysadmin should become involved. Most often, the ticketing system is not directly linked to the hosting space and is part of the billing account, which implies that you’ll need to have no less than 2 different accounts to touch base with the help desk staff and to actually administer the hosting space. Non-stop switching between the accounts might sometimes be a nuisance, not to mention the fact that it requires a very long time for the vast majority of web hosting companies to answer the ticket requests themselves.
