Discover what set-up fees are in the web hosting world and how you can avoid them with the proper hosting provider.
When you purchase a brand new website hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, your account is created and as automated as the entire process seems, there're always little things that are conducted personally. For your virtual or a dedicated server there are even more things to be done because these types of website hosting often need a manual setup, software installation and configuration, testing the server setting to guarantee that everything is working fine, etc. To fund the cost for the time and efforts these duties take, a lot of companies require a one-time set-up cost to be paid by their customers in addition to the price for the cloud hosting. The fee in most cases applies to any new website hosting account being ordered and it's very rarely mentioned on the company’s web site, but it would appear on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting
package via our company, the end price that you'll need to pay during the checkout will be identical to the cost you've already viewed on the main page or on every other page on our web site. The processing of the payment as well as the account generation on our modern cloud hosting system are close to fully automated, that's why we believe that charging you any installation costs whatsoever is rather unreasonable. Even if you acquire a couple of accounts at one time, you won't need to spend any money for their setup or for any other concealed fees for that matter. It's our belief that being honest with each and every customer since the beginning is far more important than getting a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you order a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, your first payment is exactly the same as all of the renewal payments for the next months. We do not have any kind of setup charges, or any hidden fees of any sort, for that matter. We value a business relationship based on mutual trust more than a few additional dollars, that's why even if you already have a shared hosting plan here and you'd like to relocate all of your content to a brand new semi-dedicated server, to enjoy a more powerful web hosting alternative, we will do everything for you at no additional fee apart from the regular monthly fee for your new package. The set up of a semi-dedicated account is almost fully automatic, and we consider that charging you anything for that wouldn't be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server
plans lack setup charges as well as any obscured fees of any sort. If you purchase such a package, we'll assemble your server, mount its OS, web server software, MySQL, etc., and we will give you an entirely functional system without any extra cost. All you will have to pay will be the monthly cost for the plan you have chosen and that price is exactly the same for the subsequent months too. It's our principle that charging you more money for a process that is almost completely automated is quite unreasonable, which means that the amount you see on our main page is identical to the one that will appear on your bank statement. That is valid regardless if we transfer one or more sites from a shared hosting account to a new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Linux dedicated servers hosting
do not have any setup or other concealed fees. Through your signup process, you'll pay only the monthly rate for the package that you've chosen. As soon as you submit your order, we'll build and test your new machine, and then we will install all the software that you will need to have a fully functional server - OS, website hosting Control Panel in case you've picked one, web server, MySQL, etc. All of the aforementioned activities are a part of the package and they are provided for free, which means that the registration payment and all of your future renewal payments will be exactly the same. If the server is equipped with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you have a shared web hosting account from our company, we can even move your content on your brand new server without charge.
