Every time you acquire a brand new website hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, your account is created and as automated as the entire process can be, there are always small things which are executed manually. For your virtual or a dedicated server there're even more things to be done because these forms of web hosting normally require a manual setup, software installation & configuration, testing the server setting so as to ensure that everything's working the way it should, and so on. To cover the expenses for the time and efforts all these tasks take, a lot of companies call for a one-time set-up charge to be paid by their clients in addition to the charge for the shared website hosting. The charge usually applies to every new web hosting account being bought and it is very rarely listed on the company’s site, still it shows up on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting package via us, the final price that you will need to pay throughout the checkout is exactly the same as the one you've already viewed on our home page as well as on any other page on our website. The processing of your payment and the account creation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting system are nearly completely automatic, that's why we believe that charging you any setup fees whatsoever will be rather unreasonable. Even if you obtain several accounts at one time, you won't be expected to spend anything for the setup or for any other hidden fees for that matter. It's our principle that being honest with each customer from the beginning is much more beneficial than acquiring a few more dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through us, your first payment is exactly the same as all the renewal payments for the next months. We don't have any kind of installation costs, or any obscured costs of any type, for that matter. We value a business partnership based upon mutual trust a lot more than a few extra dollars, therefore even if you have a shared web hosting package with us and you intend to move all of your content to a new semi-dedicated server, so as to obtain a more powerful website hosting alternative, we'll do everything for you at no additional fee except for the standard monthly fee for your new package. The set up of a semi-dedicated account is practically completely automatic, so we think that charging you anything for that would not be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS
Our virtual private server plans don't have installation fees or any obscured fees of any sort. In case you purchase such a plan, we will create the server, install its OS, web server software, MySQL, etc., and we'll give you an entirely functional system without additional cost. All you'll have to pay is the monthly rate for the plan you have picked and that price will be the same for the following months too. It is our belief that charging you more money for a procedure that's almost fully automatic is quite unreasonable, so the amount you see on our front page will be identical to the one that will show up on your bank statement. That is valid even when we transfer one or several websites from a shared hosting account to your brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a dedicated server from our company, we shall configure the machine completely free of charge. The price that you will find and pay will be exactly the same on our web site, on your payment page as well as on your bank statement, and the total amount you will pay through the registration will be the same as the one you will pay to renew the plan later on. We will supply a ready-to-use machine, which is built and tried, and which comes with all of the required software pre-installed - OS, web server, MySQL, FTP, as well as website hosting Control Panel when you have selected one through the registration, but all these tasks are executed free of charge. We will even move all your data without additional charge when you order your dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel and you already have an ordinary shared hosting plan from our company.
