Find out what set-up fees are in the web hosting world and how you could avoid them with the proper host company.
Whenever you obtain a new hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, your account is created and as automated as the entire process seems, there're always smaller things that are done personally. For every virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done since these types of hosting normally need a manual setup, software installation and configuration, testing the server environment in order to make sure that everything is working fine, etc. To cover the cost for the time and efforts these things take, most companies collect a one-time set-up fee to be paid by their customers in addition to the charge for the cloud hosting. The fee usually is valid for every new website hosting account being purchased and it is very rarely mentioned on the company’s web site, but it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Cloud Hosting
We do not charge anything over the price of the Linux cloud hosting service
that you choose, therefore you will not need to pay any installation costs or any kind of charges except for what you have already seen on the main page. We consider that being honest to our clients is of crucial importance to building a long-term business partnership, that being said we will never expect you to pay obscured charges of any sort, particularly for something that's virtually fully automatic and normally takes a couple of minutes to be done by our system. You will not pay set-up fees even if you get a number of accounts plus they will all be fully active immediately, so you are able to begin working on your websites. The overall amount of money that you need to pay for all of our packages is the same that you see on the main page.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans are activated right away and without any additional installation charges. The cost that you will pay upon signup is identical to what you'll pay to renew your hosting account the subsequent months and the cost that you will see both on our main page & on your bank statement. In the event that you currently have a regular shared hosting plan from our company and you're getting a semi-dedicated server to get more power, we will switch all your information and we will still not charge you a dime in addition to the standard monthly fee for your brand new plan. Because the process is nearly entirely automatic, we consider that that there is no reason to charge you an additional amount of dollars, thus the cost that you will find on our web site is all that you'll have to spend.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Our VPS server
plans do not have installation charges or any obscured charges of any sort. When you acquire such a package, we'll create your server, mount its OS, web server software, MySQL, etc., and we'll provide you with a fully functional system at no additional cost. All you'll have to pay is the monthly cost for the plan you've picked and that rate is identical for the subsequent months too. It is our principle that charging you more money for a process that's almost completely automatic is quite unreasonable, that's why the amount you will find on our home page will be identical to the one that will appear on your bank statement. This is valid even when we move one or several websites from your shared hosting account to a brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
If you get a dedicated server
from us, we'll configure your machine cost-free. The rate that you'll find and pay is exactly the same on our site, on the payment page as well as on your bank statement, and the exact amount you will pay during the signup is the same as the one you will pay to renew the plan in the future. We'll provide you with a ready-to-use system, which is assembled and tried, and which comes with all the required software pre-installed - Operating System, web server, MySQL, FTP, and web hosting Control Panel when you have selected one through the registration, still all the abovementioned duties are executed free of charge. We will even move all of your information at no extra cost when you acquire your dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel and you have a standard shared hosting plan through our company.
