Per-Incident Support is designed to meet the needs of everyone from single users to enterprise-level consumers and organizations of all sizes.
An incident is defined as a question relating to a specific, discrete issue and may involve several interactions with the eXtremeSHOK team prior to resolution. Separate support incidents must be purchased for assistance with multiple support issues.
Support incident credits expire in either 3 or 6 or 12 months from the date of purchase. For more complex projects that deal with anything outside of core, we offer professional services.
If you purchased a dedicated server from us, you should have received an information card with activation instructions. Once registered, you will have two support incidents automatically added to your account. If those incident credits have been exhausted or you have not purchased a dedicated server from us, standard subscriptions incident credits can be purchased.
Incident credits are available in 2, 4 or 8 incident packs. By purchasing a 4 or 8 incident credit pack, you can take advantage of a built-in discount. Per-Incident Support fees are non-refundable.
Before purchasing support, we highly recommend that you take advantage of our on-line documentation. These are complimentary resources available to you 24×7 that may lead directly to the answers you are looking for.

What is a Support Incident / Ticket?
An Incident is a single support issue and the reasonable effort that is required to resolve it, as defined by the Terms and Conditions of Use. A single support issue is a problem that cannot be broken down into subordinate issues. If a problem consists of subordinate issues, each of these issues shall be considered a separate incident. An incident will relate to one specific feature, function, action, or facet of the software, or one aspect of its operation or performance. The definition of an incident may be expanded to include accompanying occurrences, or events that arise as a consequence of, or are dependent on it.
An example list of Incedents

What does not count as an incedent?
Examples of customer issues that will not count as an incident include:
- Out of box failure for a paid for installation/upgrade
- Pre-Sales or product availability questions
- Problems arising within 7 days of a newly deployed solution
