At the sole discretion of the System Administrator any installation, configuration, or tuning of the server may be considered billable, and you will be notified and requested to approve any additional charges. Any Support not included with your dedicated server, will be subject to a $100.00AU an hour labour fee, billed in 1 hour increments during office hours between 9:00am – 5:00pm M-F (AEST).
