Even though a standard cloud website hosting account is usually set up automatically, there're always smaller setup jobs which are executed manually by the web hosting service provider. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server requires even more efforts as a considerable amount of time is spent to install and set up the software and hardware setting, then test the machine in order to ensure its correct functioning prior to it being handed over to the client. To help cover the time spent on that, many providers have an installation charge which you are required to pay every time you obtain your brand new website hosting plan. In many cases, that particular charge will not show up prior to reaching 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 fee is one-time and it will vary from a small to a significant amount of money depending upon the company.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through us, your initial payment will be identical to all renewal payments for the next months. We do not have any setup fees, or any concealed costs of any sort, for that matter. We value a business relationship based on mutual trust more than a couple of additional dollars, therefore even if you already have a shared website hosting package with us and you wish to move all of your data to a new semi-dedicated server, so as to benefit from a more powerful hosting method, we will do everything for you at no additional fee apart from the standard monthly cost for your brand new plan. The set up of a semi-dedicated account is practically entirely automated, therefore we believe that charging you anything for that wouldn't be justified.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Our VPS server packages do not have installation fees or any concealed fees of any sort. When you get such a plan, we'll assemble the server, mount its OS, web server software, MySQL, etcetera, and we will supply you with a completely functional device without additional charges. All you'll have to pay is the regular monthly cost for the plan you have selected and that rate is exactly the same for the subsequent months too. It's our principle that charging you more money for a process that's almost entirely automatic is rather unreasonable, which means that the amount you see on our main page is the same as the one that will appear on your bank statement. That is valid regardless if we transfer one or more web sites from a shared hosting account to your brand new virtual server.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated web hosting plans lack any setup or other concealed charges. Throughout the registration process, you will pay only the monthly rate for the package that you have selected. As soon as you place your order, we will build and test your new machine, after that we'll set up all the software that you need so as to have a completely functional server - Operating System, web hosting Control Panel in case you've chosen one, web server, MySQL, etcetera. All of these duties are a part of the plan and they are provided absolutely free of charge, so the registration payment and all your forthcoming renewal payments will be exactly the same. If the server comes with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from us, we can even transfer all your content on your brand new server at no additional charge.
