What are set-up fees and what role do they play in the world of web hosting?
Any time you buy a brand new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is set up and as automatic as the entire process may seem, there're always smaller things which are executed manually. For a virtual or a dedicated server there are even more things to be done considering that these forms of web hosting often need a manual setup, software installation and configuration, checking the server setting so as to ensure that everything's working the way it should, and so on. To fund the cost for the time and efforts these things take, a lot of companies call for a one-time installation cost to be paid by their customers on top of the cost for the web hosting. The charge usually is valid for any new website hosting account being bought and it's rarely given on the company’s website, but it appears on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting
plan through our company, the final price that you will need to pay throughout the checkout will be identical to the one you've already viewed on our home page and on any other page on our web site. The payment processing as well as the account generation on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform are nearly fully automated, so we think that charging you any installation fees would be rather unreasonable. Even if you acquire a couple of accounts at a time, you won't be required to spend anything for their setup or for any other hidden costs for that matter. It's our concept that being honest to each customer from the very beginning is far more beneficial than getting a few extra dollars.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of our semi-dedicated server
plans are activated straight away and without any additional installation fees. The price that you will pay upon signup is exactly the same that you'll pay to renew your web hosting account the subsequent months and the price that you can see both on our front page and on your bank statement. In the event that you currently have an ordinary shared web hosting package with our company and you are getting a semi-dedicated server in order to get more power, we will transfer all of your content and we will still not charge you a dime on top of the regular monthly charge for your new plan. Because the process is nearly fully automatic, we consider that that there would be absolutely no reason to charge you a further amount of money, so the price that you'll see on our website is the total that you need to spend.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Using a dedicated server bought through our company, you shall never have any concealed charges and you'll never need to pay any installation costs. The price of the plan you have picked is stated on our site and it's the sole price that you'll see on both the order and the payment pages. We believe that having a new customer and building a long-term relationship is more significant than getting some more dollars, which means that we'll build your machine, set up all the necessary software and check it out totally free of charge. We'll even move your content free of cost in case you already have a shared website hosting package from our company and you want to migrate to a dedicated server
