What is Supported
zootzone.com provides support related to the functioning of customers' domain, email and web services only. It is zootzone.com's responsibility to ensure that customers' domain's DNS records are resolvable via the Internet, that web hosting accounts are on-line and available to visitors via the world-wide-web and mailboxes and email routing are functioning correctly.
zootzone.com offers configuration support for accessing mailboxes and web hosting accounts, remotely by customers. The trouble-shooting and resolution of the configuration, or malfunctioning of customers' software due to issues unrelated to basic connectivity to our services, is not covered. The latter includes problems such as software bugs, connectivity issues from a customer's Internet Service Provider and the support of non-standard configurations. In such circumstances, our support staff will usually advise you, where practical, as to where to search for a solution, or whom to contact for support which we do not cover.
zootzone.com does not offer technical support for application specific issues such as web application, or database configuration and programming, unless it is directly related to an issue caused by our systems being off-line, or faulty.
