What are set-up fees and what is their job in the realm of website hosting?
Although an average shared website hosting account is typically created automatically, there're still smaller setup jobs that are executed manually by the web hosting company. Installing a virtual or a dedicated server usually requires more efforts due to the fact that a considerable amount of time is spent to install and set up the hardware and software environment, and then test the machine in order to guarantee its optimal functioning prior to it being given to the client. To cover the time spent on that, a number of suppliers have an installation fee that you need to pay any time you acquire your new web hosting plan. Often, that fee won't appear prior to reaching the payment page and you won't see it before that on the main page next to the website hosting package characteristics. In the general case, this fee is one-time and it can vary from a small to a significant amount of money depending upon the supplier.
Setup Fee in Shared Website Hosting
If you get a shared website hosting
plan via our company, the final price that you'll need to pay through the checkout will be identical to the price you've already viewed on the front page and on every other page on our web site. The payment processing as well as the account creation on our powerful cloud hosting system are almost fully automatic, so we consider that charging you any setup costs whatsoever is very unreasonable. Even when you obtain several accounts at one time, you will not have to spend anything for the setup or for any other hidden costs for that matter. It's our belief that being honest to each and every client from the very beginning is far more important than receiving a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server
package through our company, you'll pay just the monthly charge that is already displayed on our website. The account will be created on our servers and we'll activate it in a few minutes without extra cost. This will be valid for each and every monthly payment and irrespective of the total number of accounts that you obtain. It is our belief that it is not reasonable to charge extra money for a task that we have virtually fully automated, so that you won't ever see any setup charges or another concealed charges. For this reason, all of the prices that are listed on our front page, on the payment page and on your bank statement will be identical.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
If you choose to buy your new Virtual Private Server through us, the overall cost that you'll need to pay on signup is the same both on our home page as well as on your bank statement. We do not charge any installation fees or some other hidden charges on top of the VPS monthly price. Despite the fact that the installation takes some time, it is virtually fully automated, so we believe there is no reason to demand anything extra for a few more clicks by us. If you already have a shared hosting account through us and you order a virtual server equipped with the Hepsia Control Panel, we can transfer all of your data and even in this case, we'll never expect you to pay a dime on top of the regular monthly price for your VPS server
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain a dedicated server
through our company, all you need to pay will be the standard monthly rate for your package. We shall assemble the hardware that you've chosen during the signup, we'll set up an Operating System, web server, website hosting Control Panel as well as all the other software that is provided with our plans, then test your machine, but we will never ask you to pay anything additional for that. The fee for the dedicated server you choose will be exactly the same - on our main page, on the order page and throughout your payment process, and there are no concealed fees of any sort. When you acquire a dedicated server having our Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared hosting account through our company, we will move all your data - again free of charge.
