Ticket and email support, along with phone support, live chat support, are the most popular ways customers can get help from web hosting providers. You will love it especially when you are hosting websites with a hosting company overseas. We have several sites hosted with Bluehost, a well-known budget shared hosting service provider and we are at the stage to upgrade to a higher hosting package for more server resources. Today, when trying to submit a ticket their support team, as their live chat service is slow and sometimes just not work at all, we found they have discontinued the ticket or email support.
Phone call support and live chat support are both instant communication tools. Email support or ticket support is the best one for customers in different countries or timezone. It is not a good idea to give up the ticket or email support. This will cause many inconveniences for overseas customers.
