FAQ

Does support is included?

No, like everything is already configured and there is readme file with all required information for final changes. There is included only initial configuration. The future updates of automated hosted plugin or LHC itself is YOUR responsibility.

Is it possible for you to do all the upgrades?

Yes, there is single time upgrade fee 100$ or yearly 800$ support fee. In that case updates to recent LHC version will be done once a month.
