What are set-up fees and what role do they play in the realm of website hosting?
Whenever you purchase a new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is set up and as automatic as the entire process can be, there are always smaller things that are handled personally. For every virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done since these kinds of hosting usually need a manual setup, software installation & configuration, checking the server setting in order to ensure that everything is working the way it should, etcetera. To fund the cost for the time and efforts all of these duties take, a lot of companies require a one-time set-up cost to be paid by their customers on top of the price for the shared hosting. The fee usually is valid for any new website hosting account being obtained and it is rarely listed on the company’s website, but it would appear on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
When you acquire a shared hosting
plan from our company, you will not ever be required to pay any installation charges. In fact, we don't have other hidden charges of any type too. We respect every client and it's our belief that when you acquire any plan through us, you shouldn't pay something more than the cost for the web hosting package. You will not see any sort of concealed charges after or before your order, which shows you that we're a dependable and loyal provider. The price of every shared web hosting plan will be the same all around on our web site - the main page, the order and payment pages. As we also have real-time account activation, you will not need to wait for hours or even days to be able to start setting up your site.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages do not have any kind of setup charges, so if you order a new account, your total fee for the very first month will be identical for your future renewals. Considering that it takes us a few minutes to create and activate your new semi-dedicated account, we believe that it wouldn't be justified to charge you a dime for that. You will see the very same amount on our main page, on your payment page as well as on your bank or PayPal statement and you will never need to pay any extra charges. If you already have a standard shared website hosting account from our company and you need a more powerful solution, we can even relocate all of your data to the brand new semi-dedicated account cost-free.
Setup Fee in VPS Hosting
Our virtual private server
packages don't have installation fees as well as any hidden charges of any sort. If you buy such a plan, we will assemble the server, install its OS, web server software, MySQL, etc., and we will supply you with an entirely functional device at no extra charges. All you will have to pay will be the standard monthly cost for the package you have chosen and that rate is exactly the same for the following months as well. It's our belief that charging you additional money for a procedure that is almost totally automatic is rather unreasonable, therefore the amount you can find on our front page is the same as the one that will appear on your bank statement. That is valid even when we move one or more sites from your shared hosting account to a new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you buy a dedicated server
from our company, all you'll have to pay is the standard monthly rate for your plan. We will put together the hardware that you've selected during the signup, we will install an OS, web server, web hosting Control Panel and all other software that comes with our plans, then test your machine, but we will never require you to pay anything additional for that. The fee for the dedicated server you choose will be identical - on the front page, on the order page and through your payment process, and there'll be no concealed costs of any type. When you acquire a dedicated server equipped with the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from us, we will transfer all of your data - again free of charge.
