Find out what set-up charges are and just what their role in the hosting world is.
Despite of the fact that a standard shared hosting account is usually set up automatically, there're always small configuration duties that are executed manually by the web hosting supplier. Installing a virtual or a dedicated server usually takes even additional efforts because a lot of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software environment, and after that test the server so as to warrant its optimal operation before it is handed over to the customer. To help cover the amount of time spent on that, various providers have a set-up charge that you will be required to pay when you acquire your new hosting package. Often, that particular fee won't appear prior to reaching the payment page and you won't notice it before that on the main page near the website hosting package attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it will range from a small to a significant amount of money based on the supplier.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting
plan via our company, the end price that you need to pay throughout the checkout will be exactly the same as the price you have already seen on the home page or on any other page on our web site. The processing of your payment and the account generation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting system are close to fully automated, that's why we believe that charging you any kind of setup fees whatsoever is rather unreasonable. Even if you get several accounts at one time, you won't need to spend any money for their setup or for any other concealed costs for that matter. It is our concept that being honest to every single client from the beginning is much more important than obtaining a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any sort of installation fees, so if you obtain a new account, the total fee for the very first month will be exactly the same as for your future renewals. Considering the fact that it takes us several minutes to generate and activate your new semi-dedicated account, we think that it would not be right to charge you anything for that. You'll see the exact same amount on the main page, on the payment page and also on your bank or PayPal statement and you will not ever have to pay any kind of additional charges. If you already have a standard shared hosting account with our company and you need a more powerful alternative, we can even transfer all of your content to the brand new semi-dedicated account without charge.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a dedicated server
from our company, all you will have to pay is the standard monthly cost for your package. We shall assemble the hardware that you've picked through the signup, we'll set up an Operating System, web server, web hosting Control Panel as well as all other software that is provided with our plans, then test the machine, but we will never ask you to pay anything extra for this. The price of the dedicated server you select is always identical - on our front page, on the order page and during the payment process, and there are no hidden fees of any sort. When you acquire a dedicated server having our Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared hosting account from our company, we will move all of your data - again at no extra cost.
