When you obtain a brand new hosting account, your payment is processed, the account is set up and as automatic as the whole process may seem, there're always some things that are executed personally. For every virtual or a dedicated server there're even more tasks to be done as these types of web hosting generally require a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, checking the server platform so as to make sure that all things are working fine, etcetera. To cover the cost for the time and efforts these things take, a lot of companies call for a one-time installation fee to be paid by their customers in addition to the price for the shared hosting. The charge typically applies to any new web hosting account being acquired and it is very rarely mentioned on the company’s website, yet it appears on your checkout page.

Setup Fee in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company, the end price that you'll have to pay through the checkout will be identical to the cost you've already found on the main page and on every other page on our site. The processing of the payment as well as the account creation on our modern cloud hosting platform are close to fully automated, so we consider that charging you any kind of setup costs would be rather unreasonable. Even when you get a couple of accounts at a time, you won't be required to spend any money for their setup or for any other kind of concealed costs for that matter. It is our belief that being honest to each and every client from the beginning is much more valuable than acquiring a few extra dollars.

Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, your original payment is identical to all of the renewal payments for the following months. We do not have any installation charges, or any hidden charges of any sort, for that matter. We appreciate a business partnership based upon mutual trust a lot more than some additional dollars, therefore even if you have a shared website hosting package here and you'd like to move all of your content to a brand new semi-dedicated server, to benefit from a more powerful web hosting alternative, we will do everything for you at no additional fee apart from the regular monthly fee for your brand new package. The installation of a semi-dedicated account is practically entirely automated, and we think that charging you anything for that wouldn't be justified.

Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers

Our dedicated servers are devoid of any installation or other hidden charges. Through your signup process, you will pay only the standard monthly price for the package that you've selected. As soon as you place your order, we'll assemble and try your new machine, and then we will set up all the software that you will need in order to have a completely functional server - Operating System, website hosting Control Panel if you have chosen one, web server, MySQL, etc. All of the aforementioned duties are part of the package and they are provided absolutely free of charge, thus the registration payment and all of your forthcoming renewal payments will be identical. If the server is equipped with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you already have a shared web hosting account from our company, we can even move your content on your new server without charge.
