What are set-up fees and what role do they play in the realm of Internet hosting?
Even though a standard shared web hosting account is usually set up automatically, there are always smaller setup duties which are executed manually by the hosting provider. Installing a virtual or a dedicated server requires even more efforts as a lot of time is spent to install and set up the software and hardware setting, and then test the server to warrant its optimal functioning before it's handed over to the customer. To be able to cover the time spent on that, a large number of suppliers have a set-up charge that you have to pay at the time you order your new web hosting package. Often, that charge will not appear prior to reaching the payment page and you will not see it before that on your main page next to the website hosting package attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it may vary from a small to a significant amount of money depending on the supplier.
Setup Fee in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting
plan through our company, you will never need to pay any setup fees. In fact, we do not have other hidden charges of any type either. We appreciate each and every client and it's our belief that when you purchase any package from us, you shouldn't have to pay anything more than the charge for the hosting package. You won't find any kind of hidden fees before or after your purchase, which shows you that we are a dependable and trustworthy provider. The cost of your shared hosting package is the same all around on our site - the main page, the order as well as the payment pages. As we offer immediate account activation, you won't have to wait for hours or even days to be able to start setting up your site.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
packages do not have any sort of installation fees, so if you order your new account, your total fee for the first month is the very same for the future renewals. As it takes us a few minutes to create 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 the main page, on the payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you'll never have to pay any extra charges. If you already have an ordinary shared website hosting account with our company and you want a more powerful solution, we will even move all of your data to the new semi-dedicated account completely free.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you obtain a dedicated server
through us, all you'll need to pay will be the regular monthly rate for the plan. We'll put together the hardware configuration that you've selected during the signup, we will set up an OS, web server, hosting Control Panel and all the other software that is provided with our plans, then test your machine, but we will never require that you pay anything extra for this. The price of the dedicated server you choose will be identical - on our front page, on the order page and throughout your payment process, and there'll be no hidden charges of any sort. If you get a dedicated server equipped with the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared hosting account from us, we can transfer all your information - again free of charge.
