What are set-up fees and what is their job in the realm of website hosting?
Despite of the fact that a regular website hosting account is usually set up automatically, there're always smaller configuration jobs which are executed personally by the hosting provider. Installing a virtual or a dedicated server takes even more efforts as a considerable amount of time is spent to install and set up the hardware and software setting, and after that test the machine to guarantee its optimal operation before it is given to the end user. To be able to cover the amount of time spent on that, countless suppliers have an installation fee which you have to pay at the time you acquire your brand new web hosting plan. Often, that charge won't appear prior to reaching the payment page and you will not notice it before that on your main page next to the hosting package attributes. 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 provider.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
plans don't have any sort of setup costs or any other hidden fees as a general rule. If you purchase your account, we'll process your fee at once and then the account will be generated and activated from our system straight away. The overall price that you'll be required to pay for the website hosting plan will be identical all around - on the home, order and payment pages, and you will not see or be charged anything further than that price any time. This is valid even when you purchase multiple accounts since it is our understanding that building trust is more important than getting a couple of more dollars. The account activation will be immediate, so that you can go ahead and start building your websites immediately.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any kind of installation fees, so when you acquire a new account, the total fee for the first month is identical for the future renewals. As it takes us a couple of min to set up and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we think that it wouldn't be justified to charge you a dime for that. You'll see the exact same amount on the main page, on your payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you will never be required to pay any extra fees. If you already have a regular shared website hosting account with our company and you want a more powerful alternative, we can even relocate all of your data to the new semi-dedicated account absolutely free.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated servers
do not have any installation or other concealed charges. Through the registration process, you'll pay just the standard monthly rate for the plan that you have selected. As soon as you place your order, we'll put together and try your brand new machine, after that we will install all the software that you need in order to have a completely functional server - OS, hosting Control Panel when you have selected one, web server, MySQL, etc. All of the aforementioned jobs are part of the plan and they are provided absolutely free of charge, which means that the signup payment and your future renewal payments will be identical. If the server comes with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you have a shared web hosting account from our company, we can even transfer all of your content on your new server without charge.
