I reached out to 28 hosting companies’ live chat support. Here’s what I found

Last month I went undercover and did a survey of 28 different hosting companies and their live chat support.

For this experiment, I visited websites of those companies and asked for live chat support and recorded my experience in a spreadsheet.

Quantitative elements I tracked include:

  • Number of attempts to connect
  • Average wait time
  • Whether he was satisfied with the experience
  • Additional notes and remarks

For hosting support – I prefer live chats over phone calls because:

  • It’s easier to communicate using live chat system compare to phone calls as we (usually) speak in different accents
  • It’s a lot more to discuss technical issues using charts, images, screen casts, and words.

Partial Results

Here are the results I got with some of the hosting companies. For full details, please check out the original post at WHSR.
