What are set-up fees and what is their job in the realm of website hosting?
Any time you purchase a brand new hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, the account is made and as automated as the whole process seems, there're always small things which are done manually. For a virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done because these types of website hosting normally require a manual assembly, software installation and configuration, testing the server platform so as to make sure that everything's working fine, etcetera. To cover the cost for the time and efforts all of these duties take, a lot of companies collect a one-time set-up fee to be paid by their clients on top of the price for the hosting. The charge often is valid for every new hosting account being acquired and it is very rarely given on the company’s site, yet it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Hosting
When you get a hosting
package from our company, the final price that you'll need to pay through the checkout will be exactly the same as the price you've already seen on the home page or on any other page on our site. The payment processing and the account generation on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform are almost fully automatic, so we believe that charging you any setup costs would be very unreasonable. Even when you order several accounts at once, you won't be expected to spend anything for the setup or for any other kind of hidden fees for that matter. It is our belief that being honest with every single customer since the very beginning is far more beneficial than acquiring a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages do not have any sort of installation charges, so if you get a new account, the total fee for the first month is identical for the forthcoming renewals. As it takes us several minutes to generate and activate your new semi-dedicated account, we think that it would not be justified to charge you something for that. You shall see the very same amount on our front page, on the payment page and also on your bank or PayPal statement and you won't ever have to pay any extra costs. If you already have a standard shared website hosting account from our company and you need a more powerful alternative, we will even move all of your content to the brand new semi-dedicated account absolutely free.
Setup Fee in VPS Web Hosting
Although installing a virtual private server
requires some time and efforts, we'll never charge you any kind of installation fees even when you purchase several servers at a time. At the time you register, you will have to pay solely the regular monthly rate for the chosen package and we'll build the VPS, mount its Operating System, web hosting Control Panel and software bundle (web server, MySQL, FTP) at no extra cost. The renewal fees for the following months are exactly the same as the initial signup cost. We believe that getting another client who puts his / her trust in us is far more important than getting a small one-time fee, therefore when you acquire a virtual server via our company, you may never see any hidden charges.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our dedicated servers hosting
are devoid of any installation or other hidden charges. Throughout your registration process, you'll pay just the regular monthly cost for the plan that you've selected. Once you submit your order, we'll build and test your brand new machine, and then we will install all the software that you need in order to have a fully operational server - Operating System, hosting Control Panel when you have chosen one, web server, MySQL, and many more. All of these duties are a part of the package and come cost-free, therefore the registration payment and your future renewal payments will be equivalent. If the server is equipped with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you curently have a shared hosting account through us, we will even transfer your content on your brand new server without charge.
