What are set-up fees and what is their function in the world of web hosting?
If you buy a brand new shared web hosting plan, it is generated on a server and the process usually takes a while, in addition to the validation and processing of the transaction, which a lot of companies perform manually. If you get a dedicated server, for instance, the setup takes more time because the machine must be built, installed and tested so as to guarantee that it will function properly. Because of this, a large number of providers have a one-time fee to cover the time and efforts used on your new account. The charge, which sometimes is high, is normally not mentioned on the front page, and you'll find it on your checkout or payment page, which means that you won't be aware of it before you've already gone through the entire signup process and you may even miss it unless you pay attention.
Setup Fee in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting
plan through our company, the end price that you will need to pay during the checkout is exactly the same as the price you have already viewed on the home page or on any other page on our website. The processing of your payment and the account generation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform are almost completely automatic, so we think that charging you any setup costs will be rather unreasonable. Even if you order several accounts at one time, you won't need to spend any money for their setup or for any other kind of concealed costs for that matter. It's our belief that being honest with every single customer since the beginning is way more valuable than getting a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
packages are activated without delay and without any additional setup fees. The worth that you'll pay upon signup is exactly the same that you'll pay to renew your account the following months and the cost that you will find both on our front page & on your bank statement. In case you currently have a regular shared web hosting package from our company and you're getting a semi-dedicated server in order to get more power, we'll relocate all of your info and we'll still not charge you a dime on top of the standard monthly cost for your new plan. Since the process is virtually completely automatic, we think that there is absolutely no reason to charge you a further amount of dollars, that's why the price that you find on our site is all that you'll have to pay.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Even though setting up a VPS server
requires some time and efforts, we will never charge you any kind of installation rates irrespective of whether you buy several servers at a time. When you join us, you will need to pay solely the regular monthly price for the selected plan and we will assemble your VPS, install its OS, web hosting Control Panel and software package (web server, MySQL, FTP) without further charge. The renewal fees for the next months will be exactly the same as the initial signup fee. We think that having one more customer that puts his / her trust in us is far more important than getting a modest one-time charge, therefore when you get a virtual server through us, you may never find any hidden charges.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
When you order a dedicated server
through us, we will configure the machine without cost. The fee that you will see and pay will be identical on our web site, on our payment page as well as on your bank statement, plus the exact amount you will pay through the signup will be the same as the one you will pay to renew your package in the future. We'll supply a ready-to-use machine, which is assembled and tried, and which includes all the required software in advance - OS, web server, MySQL, FTP, plus website hosting Control Panel if you have picked one throughout the signup, still all the aforementioned duties are executed free of charge. We will even relocate all of your content at no additional fee when you get your dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel and you already have a standard shared hosting plan through our company.
