Find out what set-up fees are in the website hosting world and how you can avoid them with the right host company.
Whenever you get a new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is set up and as automatic as the entire process seems, there're always little things which are done manually. For every virtual or a dedicated server there are even more things to be done because these types of hosting normally need a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, checking the server environment so as to make sure that all things are working fine, etc. To pay for the expenses for the time and efforts all of these tasks take, many companies collect a one-time installation fee to be paid by their customers on top of the charge for the website hosting. The charge typically is valid for any new hosting account being ordered and it's rarely mentioned on the company’s website, however it shows up on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
We do not charge anything on top of the price of the Linux website hosting package
that you pick, therefore you will not have to pay any installation costs or any kind of charges except for what you have already seen on our front page. We think that being honest with our customers is of crucial importance to making a long-lasting business partnership, that being said we'll never expect you to pay hidden fees of any type, particularly for something that's virtually entirely automated and normally requires several minutes to be performed by our system. You won't pay installation charges even if you order a number of accounts plus they will all be completely active instantly, so you will be able to begin working on your web sites. The full amount that you have to pay for each of our plans is the very same that you will see on our main page.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages don't have any kind of installation fees, so when you order your new account, the total fee for the first month is exactly the same as for the future renewals. Considering the fact that it takes us several minutes to create and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we think that it would not be right to charge you something for that. You'll see the very same amount on our main page, on the payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you will never have to pay any kind of extra charges. If you already have a regular shared hosting account with our company and you want a more powerful solution, we can even relocate all your data to the brand new semi-dedicated account absolutely free.
Setup Fee in VPS Hosting
Even though creating a virtual private server
takes some time and efforts, we'll never ask you for any kind of installation fees irrespective of whether you purchase several servers at one time. At the time you join us, you will have to pay solely the standard monthly cost for the chosen plan and we will build your VPS, mount its OS, website hosting Control Panel and software bundle (web server, MySQL, FTP) without further cost. The renewal fees for the next months will be identical to the initial signup cost. We are aware that getting another customer that puts his / her trust in us is more important than receiving a modest one-time fee, so when you obtain a virtual server via us, you may never find any hidden charges.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you obtain a dedicated server
from our company, we will set up your machine free of charge. The price that you will see and pay is exactly the same on our website, on the payment page and on your bank statement, and the total amount you will pay during the registration is the same as the one you'll pay to renew your plan later on. We'll offer you a ready-to-use machine, which is put together and tried, and which includes all of the required software in advance - OS, web server, MySQL, FTP, and web hosting Control Panel if you have chosen one through the signup, yet all these duties are executed absolutely free. We will even transfer your content at no extra cost when you get the dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel and you already have a regular shared hosting package through our company.
