What are set-up fees and what role do they play in the realm of web hosting?
Whenever you purchase a new website hosting account, your payment is processed, the account is made and as automatic as the entire process can be, there are always some things that are handled personally. For a virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done as these types of website hosting often require a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, testing the server setting to ensure that everything's working fine, and so on. To fund the expenses for the time and efforts all these things take, many companies call for a one-time installation charge to be paid by their customers in addition to the charge for the cloud website hosting. The fee usually applies to any new web hosting account being obtained and it's very rarely listed on the company’s website, however it would appear on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Cloud Website Hosting
Our company does not charge anything on top of the cost of the Linux cloud website hosting
that you choose, therefore you won't be required to pay any sort of installation fees or any other charges different from what you've already found on the main page. We think that being honest with our customers is of key importance for establishing a long-lasting business relationship, that being said we will never require that you pay concealed charges of any sort, particularly for something that's close to completely automatic and normally requires a few minutes to be executed by our system. You will not pay installation costs even if you purchase multiple accounts plus they'll all be entirely active straight away, so that you'll be able to start taking care of your sites. The full amount that you have to pay for each of our packages is the same that you will find on the front page.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages do not have any sort of installation charges, so when you obtain a new account, the total fee for the first month is identical for the forthcoming renewals. Since it takes us several min to set up and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we believe that it would not be justified to charge you anything for that. You will see the exact same amount on the front page, on your payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you will never have to pay any additional charges. If you have a standard shared website hosting account with our company and you need a more powerful solution, we will even transfer all of your content to the new semi-dedicated account gratis.
Setup Fee in VPS
Even though installing a virtual private server
takes time and efforts, we'll never charge you any kind of setup rates even if you order several servers at one time. At the time you register, you have to pay solely the standard monthly cost for the chosen plan and we'll create your VPS, set up its OS, hosting Control Panel and software package (web server, MySQL, FTP) without additional charge. The renewal charges for the next months are exactly the same as the original registration fee. We think that having another client that trusts us is much more important than receiving a modest one-time charge, so when you obtain a virtual server through us, you will never find any hidden charges.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Hosting
When you order a dedicated server
from our company, all you'll have to pay will be the standard monthly fee for your package. We will assemble the hardware that you have chosen during the signup, we will install an OS, web server, web hosting Control Panel as well as all other software that comes with our packages, then test the machine, but we'll never ask you to pay anything additional for this. The price of the dedicated server you choose is always identical - on the main page, on the order page and through the payment process, and there'll be no concealed charges of any sort. If you acquire a dedicated server equipped with the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from our company, we will move all your content - again free of charge.
