Find what set-up fees are in the website hosting world and how you could avoid them with the right host company.
Any time you order a new web hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is set up and as automatic as the entire process may be, there are always small things that are done manually. For your virtual or a dedicated server there are even more tasks to be done since these forms of web hosting normally require a manual setup, software installation and configuration, checking the server setting to ensure that all things are working the way it should, etc. To cover the cost for the time and efforts all of these duties take, many companies collect a one-time installation cost to be paid by their customers on top of the charge for the hosting. The charge typically applies to any new website hosting account being obtained and it is hardly ever mentioned on the company’s website, yet it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Hosting
If you get a hosting
plan via our company, the final price that you'll have to pay through the checkout will be identical to the cost you've already noticed on the home page or on any other page on our website. The processing of your payment as well as the account creation on our powerful cloud hosting platform are close to completely automated, so we believe that charging you any setup fees whatsoever will be very unreasonable. Even if you get a couple of accounts at once, you will not be required to spend any money for their setup or for any other concealed costs for that matter. It is our concept that being honest to every single client since the very beginning is way more valuable than obtaining a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
package through us, you will pay just the monthly fee that you already see on our web site. Your account will be made on our servers and we'll activate it in a few minutes at no extra fee. This is valid for every single monthly fee and irrespective of the total number of accounts that you purchase. It's our belief that it is not reasonable to charge you extra money for an action that we've virtually fully automated, so you won't ever see any kind of setup fees or any other obscured charges. Due to this fact, all of the costs that are listed on our main page, on your payment page as well as on your bank statement will always be exactly the same.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you order a dedicated server
from us, all you have to pay is the regular monthly rate for the package. We'll put together the hardware configuration that you have chosen throughout the signup, we will set up an OS, web server, web hosting Control Panel as well as all other software that is provided with our plans, then test the equipment, but we'll never ask you to pay anything extra for this. The fee for the dedicated server you choose will always be identical - on the front page, on the order page and throughout the payment process, and there will be no hidden charges of any sort. If you get a dedicated server equipped with the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from us, we can move all of your content - again at no extra cost.
