Even though an average web hosting account is generally set up automatically, there are always smaller configuration jobs which are done manually by the hosting provider. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server requires more efforts since a considerable amount of time is spent to install and set up the hardware and software platform, and after that test the server so as to guarantee its optimal functioning before it's given to the client. To cover the time spent on that, various providers have a set-up fee which you will be required to pay every time you order your brand new hosting plan. Often, that charge won't appear before you reach the payment page and you will not see it before that on the main page near the hosting plan characteristics. In the general case, this fee is one-time and it can range from a little to a significant amount of money depending on the supplier.
Setup Fee in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting package via our company, the final price that you'll have to pay throughout the checkout is exactly the same as the one you've already viewed on the front page or on any other page on our website. The processing of the payment as well as the account creation on our revolutionary cloud hosting system are nearly fully automated, so we think that charging you any setup fees whatsoever is rather unreasonable. Even when you order a couple of accounts at one time, you will not be required to spend anything for their setup or for any other concealed costs for that matter. It's our concept that being honest to each customer from the beginning is far more valuable than acquiring a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, your first payment will be exactly the same as all the renewal payments for the subsequent months. We don't have any installation costs, or any concealed costs of any sort, for that matter. We value a business relationship based upon mutual trust much more than a couple of additional dollars, which means that even if you have a shared web hosting plan with us and you intend to move all of your data to a brand new semi-dedicated server, so as to get a more powerful hosting solution, we'll do everything for you at no extra fee except for the standard monthly cost for the new package. The installation of a semi-dedicated account is practically entirely automated, therefore we consider that charging you something for that would not be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Even though launching a VPS server requires some time and efforts, we will never charge you any kind of setup fees regardless if you purchase several servers at a time. When you join us, you will need to pay solely the standard monthly rate for the chosen package and we'll build your VPS, set up its OS, web hosting Control Panel and software bundle (web server, MySQL, FTP) at no further cost. The renewal charges for the following months are exactly the same as the initial registration charge. We are aware that getting another customer who trusts us is far more important than getting a modest one-time charge, that's why if you acquire a virtual server via us, you will never see any concealed fees.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server through us, we will set up the machine for free. The fee that you will see and pay will be equivalent on our website, on your payment page as well as on your bank statement, plus the total amount you'll pay through the registration will be the same as the one you will pay to renew the plan in the future. We will supply a ready-to-use system, which is assembled and tested, and which includes all of the needed software in advance - OS, web server, MySQL, FTP, as well as website hosting Control Panel if you have chosen one through the registration, but all the abovementioned duties are performed completely free. We will even move all of your data without additional fee if you order the dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel and you have a standard shared hosting package through our company.
