Find out what set-up fees are in the hosting world and how you will be able to avoid them with the proper hosting provider.
Every time you obtain a new hosting plan, it is created on a server and the overall process typically takes a while, including the validation and processing of your payment, which most companies make personally. When you buy a dedicated server, for example, the setup takes longer since the machine needs to be assembled, installed and tried so as to make sure that it will function effectively. Because of this, a lot of suppliers have a one-time charge in order to cover the time and efforts devoted to your brand new account. The fee, which sometimes is quite high, is usually not shown on the main page, and you'll find it on the checkout or payment page, therefore you won't be aware of it before you have already completed the whole registration process and you may even miss it if you do not pay attention.
Setup Fee in Hosting
If you get a hosting
package via our company, the final price that you'll need to pay throughout the checkout is identical to the price you've already noticed on the front page as well as on any other page on our site. The processing of the payment as well as the account creation on our powerful cloud hosting system are close to completely automatic, that's why we believe that charging you any kind of setup fees whatsoever is rather unreasonable. Even if you get a couple of accounts at a time, you will not be required to spend any money for the installation or for any other kind of hidden fees for that matter. It is our belief that being honest to every single client since the beginning is way more beneficial than acquiring a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, your first payment is identical to all the renewal payments for the following months. We don't have any installation costs, or any hidden charges of any type, for that matter. We appreciate a business relationship based upon mutual trust much more than a few extra dollars, that's why even if you have a shared website hosting plan with us and you would like to relocate all of your data to a brand new semi-dedicated server, so as to acquire a more powerful web hosting alternative, we'll do everything for you at no additional charge except for the regular monthly fee for your new package. The installation of a semi-dedicated account is practically completely automated, therefore we believe that charging you something for that wouldn't be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
If you decide to get a new Virtual Private Server from us, the total price that you will have to pay on signup will be the same both on our front page as well as on your bank statement. We don't charge any type of setup fees or any other hidden costs on top of the VPS monthly price. Although the installation takes a while, it's virtually completely automated, so we believe there's no reason to ask for anything extra for a couple of more clicks by us. In case you have a shared hosting account through us and you buy a virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, we will move all your data and even in this situation, we'll never require you to pay a dime on top of the standard monthly price for the VPS server
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated web hosting plans
don't have any installation or other concealed fees. Through your signup process, you shall pay only the monthly price for the package that you've chosen. When you submit your order, we will assemble and try your brand new machine, then we'll install all of the software that you need to have a fully functional server - Operating System, web hosting Control Panel in case you've selected one, web server, MySQL, and many more. All these jobs are part of the package and they come for free, which means that the registration payment and all your future renewal payments will be equivalent. If the server is equipped with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you have a shared website hosting account from our company, we will even transfer all of your content on the server free of charge.
