Learn what set-up fees are as well as what their purpose inside the hosting community is.
Despite of the fact that a standard shared website hosting account is generally set up automatically, there are always some setup duties which are executed personally by the website hosting service provider. Setting up a virtual or a dedicated server usually takes more efforts since a lot of time is spent to install and configure the software and hardware setting, and then test the server to ensure its proper operation prior to it being handed over to the customer. To be able to cover the time spent on that, many companies have a set-up fee which you have to pay every time you obtain your new hosting package. Often, that fee won't show up before you reach the payment page and you will not notice it before that on your main page next to the web hosting package characteristics. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it can range from a little to a significant amount of money depending upon the company.
Setup Fee in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting
package from our company, the final price that you need to pay through the checkout will be identical to the one you have already seen on the home page and on any other page on our web site. The processing of the payment and the account generation on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform are almost completely automatic, so we consider that charging you any installation costs will be rather unreasonable. Even if you order a couple of accounts at one time, you will not have to spend anything for the setup or for any other kind of hidden costs for that matter. It's our concept that being honest to every single client from the beginning is way more valuable than getting a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, your first payment is identical to all of the renewal payments for the next months. We don't have virtually any installation costs, or any concealed fees of any type, for that matter. We value a business partnership based upon mutual trust much more than a couple of additional dollars, which means that even if you already have a shared website hosting plan here and you'd like to relocate all of your data to a brand new semi-dedicated server, in order to obtain a more powerful hosting alternative, we can do everything for you at no additional cost except for the standard monthly fee for your new plan. The set up of a semi-dedicated account is practically completely automatic, that's why we consider that charging you something for that would not be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Our VPS server
plans lack installation fees and any hidden fees of any sort. When you obtain such a package, we'll assemble the server, mount its Operating System, web server software, MySQL, etcetera, and we'll give you a completely functional machine at no extra cost. All you will have to pay will be the regular monthly price for the package you have selected and that price is the same for the following months as well. It's our principle that charging you additional money for a procedure that is almost entirely automatic is unreasonable, so the amount you can find on our front page will be identical to the one that will appear on your bank statement. This is valid regardless if we transfer one or more sites from a shared hosting account to your new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
When you purchase a dedicated server
from our company, all you'll have to pay is the regular monthly fee for your plan. We shall assemble the hardware configuration that you have picked through the signup, we will install an Operating System, web server, web hosting Control Panel plus all other software that is included with our plans, then test the equipment, but we will never require you to pay anything extra for that. The fee for the dedicated server you pick will be the same - on the main page, on the order page and during your payment process, and there will be no concealed costs of any type. If you get a dedicated server equipped with the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared web hosting account through our company, we will move all your content - again free of charge.
