Even though a regular website hosting account is typically set up automatically, there are still some setup tasks that are executed manually by the web hosting provider. Setting up a virtual or a dedicated server usually takes even more efforts since a considerable amount of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software environment, and then test the server in order to guarantee its proper functioning prior to it being handed over to the end user. In order to cover the time spent on that, a lot of companies have a set-up charge which you are required to pay when you acquire your new website hosting plan. In some cases, that charge won't appear before you reach the payment page and you will not see it before that on your main page next to the hosting package features. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it can vary from a small to a significant amount of money based on the company.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting package via us, the final price that you need to pay throughout the checkout is identical to the cost you have already seen on our home page and on any other page on our site. The payment processing and the account generation on our powerful cloud hosting system are nearly fully automated, that's why we think that charging you any kind of setup costs whatsoever is very unreasonable. Even when you get several accounts at once, you won't have to spend anything for their setup or for any other kind of hidden costs for that matter. It is our principle that being honest with each customer since the beginning is much more important than acquiring a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages lack any installation or other concealed fees. Through the registration process, you'll pay just the standard monthly cost for the plan that you've selected. Once you place your order, we'll build and test your new machine, after that we'll set up all of the software that you need so as to have a completely operational server - OS, hosting Control Panel if you've chosen one, web server, MySQL, etc. All of these activities are part of the package and come cost-free, so the signup payment and all your future renewal payments will be equivalent. If the server features our tailor-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from us, we can even transfer all of your content on the server free of charge.
