Find what set-up fees are in the web hosting world and how you can avoid them with the right host company.
When you obtain a new web hosting account, your payment is processed, the account is made and as automated as the entire process may be, there are always small things that are executed manually. For a virtual or a dedicated server there're even more things to be done since these kinds of website hosting often require a manual setup, software installation & configuration, testing the server setting in order to make sure that all things are working the way it should, etcetera. To pay for the expenses for the time and efforts all these tasks take, many companies require a one-time set-up cost to be paid by their clients in addition to the charge for the cloud web hosting. The fee in most cases applies to every new web hosting account being ordered and it's very rarely listed on the company’s web site, yet it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
packages lack any setup charges or any other concealed fees as a rule. When you buy an account, we'll process your payment immediately and then your account will be generated and activated from our system instantly. The overall price that you'll be required to pay for your hosting package will be identical all around - on your front, order and payment pages, and you will not notice or have to pay anything on top of that price at any time. That is valid irrespective of whether you obtain multiple accounts since it is our belief that building trust is much more important than gaining a few more dollars. Your account activation will be immediate, thus you'll be able to proceed and start creating your sites immediately.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
package from us, you'll pay just the monthly charge that you can already see on our website. Your account will be set up on our servers and we'll activate it within a couple of minutes without additional cost. This is valid for every monthly charge and regardless of the number of accounts that you get. It is our belief that it is not reasonable to charge you additional money for something that we have almost fully computerized, that's why you'll never see any kind of setup fees or another obscured costs. By reason of this, the fees which are listed on our main page, on the payment page as well as on your bank statement will always be exactly the same.
Setup Fee in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server
plans don't have setup charges and any concealed fees of any sort. If you acquire such a plan, we will assemble the server, mount its Operating System, web server software, MySQL, etcetera, and we'll give you a completely functional system at no additional expenses. All you'll have to pay is the standard monthly price for the plan you've picked and that cost will be exactly the same for the following months as well. It's our belief that charging you additional money for a procedure that's almost completely automated is rather unreasonable, that's why the amount you can find on our front page is the same as the one that will appear on your bank statement. This is valid even when we move one or more sites from your shared hosting account to your brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you order a dedicated server
through us, all you need to pay is the standard monthly rate for your package. We'll assemble the hardware configuration that you have chosen throughout the signup, we'll install an Operating System, web server, web hosting Control Panel and all the other software that is featured with our packages, then test the machine, but we'll never ask you to pay anything extra for that. The cost of the dedicated server you choose will be the same - on the front page, on the order page and during the payment process, and there'll be no hidden charges of any type. When you obtain a dedicated server using the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared hosting account through our company, we can transfer all your information - again at no extra cost.
