Find what set-up fees are in the hosting world and how you can avoid them with the right host company.
Every time you purchase a brand new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is created and as automatic as the entire process may seem, there are always some things that are performed manually. For a virtual or a dedicated server there are even more things to be done as these forms of hosting generally require a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, testing the server platform in order to ensure that all things are working fine, etc. To pay for the cost for the time and efforts all of these tasks take, a lot of companies collect a one-time installation charge to be paid by their clients in addition to the price for the website hosting. The fee typically is valid for every new website hosting account being ordered and it's hardly ever given on the company’s website, still it would appear on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
When you get a website hosting
package through our company, the end price that you'll have to pay during the checkout will be exactly the same as the one you have already viewed on our front page as well as on any other page on our web site. The processing of the payment and the account generation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform are close to completely automated, that's why we believe that charging you any kind of installation costs is very unreasonable. Even when you order a couple of accounts at a time, you won't be expected to spend anything for their setup or for any other kind of concealed fees for that matter. It is our concept that being honest to each and every client from the beginning is way more important than obtaining a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any sort of installation charges, so when you obtain your new account, the total fee for the first month is the very same for the forthcoming renewals. As it takes us a couple of minutes to set up and activate your new semi-dedicated account, we think that it wouldn't be right to charge you something for that. You'll see the very same amount on the main page, on the payment page as well as on your bank or PayPal statement and you will never be required to pay any kind of additional fees. If you already have a standard shared hosting account from our company and you want a more powerful alternative, we can even move all of your content to the new semi-dedicated account for free.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated servers
lack any setup or other concealed fees. During your registration process, you will pay just the standard monthly cost for the package that you've chosen. As soon as you place your order, we'll assemble and try your new machine, after that we will set up all of the software that you will need in order to have a fully operational server - Operating System, website hosting Control Panel if you have chosen one, web server, MySQL, and so on. All of these activities are a part of the plan and come completely free, therefore the signup payment and all of your future renewal payments will be equivalent. If the server features our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you curently have a shared hosting account through our company, we will even transfer all your content on the server without charge.
