What is an IVR?

Interactive voice response (IVR) is a technology that allows customers to interact with a company’s host system via a telephone keypad or by speech recognition, after which services can be inquired about through the IVR dialogue. IVR systems can respond with prerecorded or dynamically generated audio to further direct users on how to proceed.

LEAR MORE ABOUT PBX TECHNOLOGY

SALES QUESTIONS

Do I need a PBX server?

Well, it depends.

If you want calls to land to your IP phone, or software phone (on a mobile device, or laptop) directly without any interactive voice prompting, then no.

If you want a pre-recorded prompting system with options for the caller, then yes.

Who provides the phone numbers?

Hosting.ca does not provide the SIP trunks or DID numbers. Hosting.ca recommends particular providers to work with, and you will have full access to view your calling records.

How long does it take for my PBX to be provisioned?

Typically it takes 24 hours to have a PBX provisioned after payment has been completed. We will require the IVR form to be filled out.

How many simultaneous calls can I make?

Each plan has different server resources allocated, thus allowing a particular amount of calls to be made simultaneously.

Basic – 5 Calls

Advanced – 10 Calls

Professional – 20 Calls

Can I upgrade at any time?

Yes you may upgrade or downgrade any time. Depending on the upgrade path, we may need to reprovision a new server, and restore the configuration using the import tool.

TECHNICAL QUESTIONS

How do I get support?

Getting support is simple. We provide support for billing, networking, upgrades and any hardware related issues. We have several paid support options if you are in need of FreePBX tech support.

How can I expect support to resolve issues?

We provide support and you can open a support ticket by emailing support@hosting.ca. We will need the IP address of the VPS or dedicated server having the issue, the root password and a detailed description of the problem you are experiencing.

How do I upgrade versions?

The FreePBX Distro has some built in features to allow you to upgrade to the newest Major Asterisk version you are using. This is all controlled through the web panel.

I used to be able to access the web interface, but not now?

Fail2ban is built into the PBX’s. If you had too many failed logins you can get blocked. You can clear them from the web back end (and white-list your IP) or you can reboot the PBX from the VPS control panel and that clears all the blocks.

Your probably being blocked by the Fail2ban firewall on the VPS.

To whitelist your IP address, click ADMIN -> SYSTEM ADMIN -> INTRUSION DETECTION and then add your external IP address of your Internet connection into the whitelist box and click SUBMIT QUERY.
