What are set-up fees and what role do they play in the realm of website hosting?
Although a standard cloud website hosting account is usually set up automatically, there are always some configuration tasks that are executed personally by the hosting provider. Setting up a virtual or a dedicated server needs even more efforts due to the fact that a lot of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software environment, then test the server so as to ensure its correct functioning prior to it being given to the customer. To cover the time spent on that, a number of providers have a set-up fee which you are required to pay any time you order your new website hosting plan. Often, that charge will not appear before you reach the payment page and you won't see it before that on the main page near the hosting plan attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it may vary from a little to a significant amount of money based on the supplier.
Setup Fee in Cloud Website Hosting
When you get a cloud website hosting
plan from us, the end price that you will need to pay during the checkout will be exactly the same as the price you have already noticed on our front page as well as on any other page on our web site. The processing of your payment and the account creation on our outstanding cloud hosting system are almost fully automatic, that's why we consider that charging you any kind of setup fees would be very unreasonable. Even when you acquire a couple of accounts at a time, you will not have to spend anything for the setup or for any other hidden costs for that matter. It's our belief that being honest to each and every customer from the very beginning is much more important than getting a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
plans are activated immediately and without any additional setup charges. The price that you'll pay when signing up is identical to what you'll pay to renew your web hosting account the following months and the cost that you can see both on our home page and on your bank statement. If you already have a regular shared web hosting plan with our company and you are getting a semi-dedicated server so as to get extra power, we will move all your content and we will still not charge you a dime on top of the standard monthly cost for the new plan. Since the process is practically completely automatic, we consider that that there is absolutely no reason to charge you an extra amount of dollars, consequently the cost that you see on the site is all that you need to spend.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server
from our company, all you'll have to pay will be the standard monthly fee for the plan you have selected and that particular price is exactly the same each month that you use the server. We do not have any obscured or installation fees and we think that creating a long-lasting business partnership that is based on trust is more crucial than asking you for a couple of extra dollars with some obscured charge that you do not spot on our main page. We shall build your virtual server and install its Operating System and all the required software totally free of cost. When you acquire the VPS with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you already have a shared website hosting package here, we can even relocate all your data to your new server totally free.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
If you get a dedicated server
from us, all you will have to pay is the standard monthly fee for your package. We will put together the hardware configuration that you have picked during the signup, we will set up an Operating System, web server, web hosting Control Panel plus all the other software that is featured with our packages, then test your machine, but we'll never require that you pay anything additional for that. The price of the dedicated server you choose is always identical - on the front page, on the order page and during the payment process, and there'll be no hidden costs of any type. If you acquire a dedicated server using the Hepsia control panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from us, we can transfer all of your info - again free of charge.
