What are set-up fees and what is their job in the world of web hosting?
Even though a regular shared hosting account is usually set up automatically, there're always small configuration jobs that are executed personally by the web hosting company. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server needs even additional efforts due to the fact that a considerable amount of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software platform, and after that test the server to warrant its optimal functioning before it is handed over to the customer. To help cover the time spent on that, a number of suppliers have an installation fee which you need to pay any time you order your brand new web hosting plan. In some cases, that charge will not appear before you reach the payment page and you will not notice it before that on the main page next to the hosting package features. In the general case, this fee is one-time and it will vary from a small to a significant amount of money depending upon the supplier.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting
plan through our company, the end price that you need to pay during the checkout is identical to the price you have already viewed on our main page as well as on any other page on our web site. The payment processing and the account creation on our advanced cloud hosting system are close to fully automated, so we consider that charging you any kind of setup fees will be very unreasonable. Even when you obtain a couple of accounts at one time, you will not need to spend anything for their setup or for any other concealed fees for that matter. It is our belief that being honest with each and every customer from the beginning is much more beneficial than getting a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any sort of setup charges, so if you order your new account, the total fee for the first month will be the very same for your future renewals. Considering the fact that it takes us several minutes to set up and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we think that it wouldn't be justified to charge you a dime for that. You shall see the very same amount on the front page, on your payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you will not ever have to pay any sort of additional fees. If you already have an ordinary shared hosting account with our company and you need a more powerful alternative, we can even transfer all your data to the brand new semi-dedicated account completely free.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Although installing a VPS server
requires time and efforts, we will never charge you any kind of setup costs even when you purchase a couple of servers at once. At the time you join us, you need to pay only the regular monthly rate for the chosen package and we'll assemble your VPS, set up its OS, hosting Control Panel and software bundle (web server, MySQL, FTP) without additional cost. The renewal charges for the next months will be exactly the same as the original registration cost. We think that getting a new client who trusts us is far more important than getting a small one-time fee, that's why when you get a virtual server from us, you will never find any concealed charges.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
With a dedicated server obtained through our company, you will never find any concealed charges and you'll never have to pay any setup charges. The cost of the package you have picked is displayed on our site and it is the sole price that you'll see on both the order and the payment pages. We consider that getting a new customer and developing a long-term partnership is more beneficial than asking you for a few more dollars, so we will build the machine, set up all of the required software and test it absolutely cost-free. We will even move all of your data absolutely free if you already have a shared web hosting plan from us and you would like to migrate to a dedicated server
which is obtained with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
