What are set-up fees and what is their function in the world of Internet hosting?
Any time you buy a brand new hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, the account is set up and as automatic as the whole process may be, there are always small things which are done personally. For your virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done because these kinds of web hosting generally need a manual setup, software installation & configuration, checking the server environment in order to make sure that everything's working the way it should, etcetera. To cover the expenses for the time and efforts all these tasks take, most companies collect a one-time set-up charge to be paid by their customers on top of the charge for the shared hosting. The charge often is valid for every new hosting account being ordered and it is hardly ever mentioned on the company’s site, yet it would appear on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting
plan via us, the end price that you'll need to pay throughout the checkout is exactly the same as the price you've already found on the main page as well as on any other page on our site. The processing of your payment as well as the account generation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting system are nearly completely automated, that's why we think that charging you any installation fees whatsoever will be very unreasonable. Even if you get a couple of accounts at one time, you will not have to spend anything for the installation or for any other concealed costs for that matter. It is our belief that being honest with each customer from the very beginning is far more beneficial than getting a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, your original payment is exactly the same as all renewal payments for the next months. We do not have virtually any setup charges, or any hidden costs of any type, for that matter. We appreciate a business partnership based on mutual trust more than a few additional dollars, that's why even if you already have a shared hosting plan here and you'd like to move your data to a brand new semi-dedicated server, so as to have a more powerful web hosting solution, we will do everything for you at no extra charge apart from the regular monthly cost for the new package. The set up of a semi-dedicated account is almost entirely automatic, so we think that charging you anything for that wouldn't be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Although launching a VPS server
takes some time and efforts, we will never ask you for any setup costs regardless if you buy a couple of servers at once. At the time you join us, you have to pay just the standard monthly rate for the picked package and we will build your VPS, install its OS, web hosting Control Panel and software bundle (web server, MySQL, FTP) without further cost. The renewal costs for the next months are identical to the original registration charge. We are aware that having another client that puts his / her trust in us is more important than receiving a modest one-time charge, so when you obtain a virtual server through our company, you may never have any concealed fees.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
With a dedicated server bought through our company, you shall never find any concealed charges and you will never have to pay any installation charges. The price of the package you have selected is listed on our web site and it is the sole price that you'll see on both the order and the payment pages. We think that having a new customer and creating a long-year relationship is more beneficial than charging you some extra dollars, therefore we will assemble the machine, set up all of the necessary software and test it completely cost-free. We will even move all of your data without charge if you already own a shared web hosting package through our company and you would like to progress to a dedicated server
which is obtained with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
