Discover what set-up fees are in the hosting world and how you could avoid them with the proper host company.
Although a regular shared hosting account is typically created automatically, there're still some configuration tasks which are done manually by the website hosting provider. Installing a virtual or a dedicated server usually takes even more efforts because a lot of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software platform, and after that test the machine so as to warrant its optimal functioning before it's handed over to the customer. To help cover the time spent on that, various suppliers have a set-up fee which you are required to pay every time you obtain your new hosting package. In some cases, that particular charge will not show up prior to reaching the payment page and you will not notice it before that on your main page near the hosting package attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it may range from a small to a significant amount of money depending upon the company.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting
plan from our company, the final price that you need to pay through the checkout will be exactly the same as the price you have already noticed on our main page and on every other page on our website. The processing of the payment as well as the account creation on our advanced cloud hosting system are close to completely automated, so we believe that charging you any kind of installation fees whatsoever is very unreasonable. Even when you obtain a couple of accounts at once, you will not be expected to spend any money for their installation or for any other kind of hidden fees for that matter. It is our principle that being honest with each client since the very beginning is far more beneficial than receiving a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, you will pay only the monthly charge that you can already see on the web site. Your account will be created on our servers and we'll activate it within a few minutes at no extra charge. This will be valid for each and every monthly payment and irrespective of the number of accounts that you acquire. It's our belief that it is unreasonable to charge extra money for an action that we have almost fully computerized, therefore you'll never find any kind of setup charges or any other obscured costs. By reason of this, all of the fees that are on our main page, on the payment page and on your bank statement will always be exactly the same.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated web hosting plans
are devoid of any setup or other hidden fees. During your registration process, you'll pay only the regular monthly rate for the plan that you have chosen. As soon as you submit your order, we will build and try your new machine, after that we will install all the software that you will need to have a completely functional server - Operating System, web hosting Control Panel when you've selected one, web server, MySQL, and so on. All of these duties are a part of the package and they are provided completely free, thus the signup payment and all your future renewal payments will be exactly the same. If the server comes with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you curently have a shared web hosting account from us, we will even transfer all your content on the server without charge.
