FAQ

1. Why should we consider having annual maintenance service with GlobalInfo, can’t we update our site ourselves?

Most content management systems are friendly enough for minor updates by you or your staff. But in order to keep your website current with content and software update you may need professional help from time to time. Adhoc charges for such small work could result in hundreds of dollars if not thousands. Having this service with us the first thing is that you have peace of mind. We work as part of your team so it saves your time looking for the right person or company to keep your online face( website) up to date.

2. What happens if my credits are all used before next billing date?

You can purchase another set of credits and your billing date will change accordingly.

3. How long does it take to see the changes requested?

We aim to attend to your request in our earliest possibility. But depending on work involved we can take this anywhere from a few hours to 2 working days.

10. Why do you offer software updates and monthly back-ups for free and don’t charge any credits?

We understand that the main cause of problems website owners face are that they don’t update software on time, and don’t keep backup of the website should something breaks due to non-qualified people trying to work on technical stuff or other server related issues. We want to give our clients peace of mind and therefore offer these two services as complimentary. We want you to use your credits on the issues that you see and not bother about the background things while we take care of them.
