Find what set-up fees are in the website hosting world and how you will be able to avoid them with the proper hosting provider.
Whenever you order a brand new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is created and as automated as the entire process can be, there are always smaller things which are handled manually. For your virtual or a dedicated server there are even more tasks to be done as these kinds of hosting normally require a manual setup, software installation & configuration, testing the server environment in order to make sure that everything's working fine, etc. To fund the cost for the time and efforts all these things take, many companies call for a one-time set-up fee to be paid by their customers on top of the price for the shared web hosting. The charge typically applies to every new website hosting account being ordered and it's rarely mentioned on the company’s website, still it would appear on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting
package from us, the final price that you need to pay through the checkout is identical to the cost you have already viewed on our front page as well as on any other page on our web site. The payment processing as well as the account generation on our powerful cloud hosting platform are almost completely automated, that's why we think that charging you any installation costs whatsoever will be very unreasonable. Even if you order a couple of accounts at once, you won't have to spend any money for their installation or for any other hidden fees for that matter. It's our belief that being honest with each and every customer from the very beginning is way more beneficial than getting a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, your initial payment is identical to all renewal payments for the subsequent months. We don't have any kind of installation fees, or any obscured fees of any type, for that matter. We value a business relationship based on mutual trust a lot more than some extra dollars, that's why even if you already have a shared hosting package here and you want to relocate all of your content to a new semi-dedicated server, in order to acquire a more powerful hosting alternative, we'll do everything for you at no extra charge except for the regular monthly charge for the new plan. The installation of a semi-dedicated account is nearly fully automated, therefore we consider that charging you something for that would not be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server
plans are devoid of installation charges and any concealed charges of any sort. If you obtain such a package, we'll create your server, mount its OS, web server software, MySQL, etc., and we'll supply you with a fully functional system without any extra charges. All you'll have to pay will be the standard monthly price for the package you have picked and that cost will be the same for the subsequent months too. It's our belief that charging you more money for a process that's almost entirely automatic is unreasonable, therefore the amount you can find on our main page is identical to the one that will appear on your bank statement. That is valid even when we transfer one or several sites from a shared hosting account to your brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server
through us, we'll set up your machine without cost. The price that you'll see and pay will be equivalent on our web site, on our payment page as well as on your bank statement, plus the total amount you will pay throughout the registration will be the same as the one you will pay to renew the plan later on. We'll give you a ready-to-use server, which is assembled and tried, and which includes all the necessary software in advance - Operating System, web server, MySQL, FTP, plus website hosting Control Panel if you have chosen one throughout the registration, still all the abovementioned duties are carried out free of charge. We will even transfer all your content at no extra cost if you obtain the dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel and you have an ordinary shared hosting package through our company.
