What are set-up fees and what is their job in the realm of website hosting?
When you get a new hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, your account is created and as automated as the whole process may seem, there are always little things which are conducted personally. For your virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done as these types of web hosting generally require a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, checking the server platform to make sure that everything's working fine, etcetera. To pay for the expenses for the time and efforts all of these duties take, most companies collect a one-time set-up fee to be paid by their customers in addition to the price for the website hosting. The charge in most cases is valid for any new hosting account being acquired and it is rarely listed on the company’s website, still it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
package via us, the end price that you will have to pay during the checkout is exactly the same as the one you've already seen on our front page as well as on every other page on our website. The payment processing as well as the account creation on our powerful cloud hosting platform are close to fully automatic, so we consider that charging you any kind of installation costs is very unreasonable. Even when you obtain several accounts at a time, you will not be required to spend anything for their setup or for any other concealed fees for that matter. It is our belief that being honest to each customer since the beginning is far more beneficial than acquiring a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any setup charges, so if you acquire a new account, your total fee for the very first month is exactly the same as for the forthcoming renewals. Since it takes us a few minutes to generate and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we think that it wouldn't be justified to charge you a dime for that. You will see the very same amount on our front page, on the payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you will not ever be required to pay any sort of extra charges. If you already have a standard shared website hosting account from our company and you need a more powerful solution, we will even transfer all of your content to the new semi-dedicated account cost-free.
Setup Fee in VPS Hosting
Our virtual private server
packages do not have setup charges or any concealed fees of any sort. When you buy such a plan, we will assemble the server, mount its Operating System, web server software, MySQL, etcetera, and we will give you a completely functional system without extra cost. All you'll have to pay will be the standard monthly price for the plan you have selected and that cost will be the same for the subsequent months as well. It is our principle that charging you more money for a process that's almost completely automated is quite unreasonable, that's why the amount you can find on our home page is the same as the one that will show up on your bank statement. That is valid regardless if we transfer one or several websites from your shared hosting account to a brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Web Hosting
Using a dedicated server obtained from our company, you will never find any hidden fees and you'll never have to pay any setup fees. The price of the package you have chosen is displayed on our web site and it's the only price that you will see on both the order and the payment pages. We think that getting a new customer and building a long-year relationship is more significant than getting a few more dollars, so we will assemble the machine, install all of the required software and test it totally cost-free. We will even relocate your content without charge if you already have a shared website hosting package from us and you want to progress to a dedicated server
that is acquired with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
