Discover what set-up fees are in the web hosting world and how you will be able to avoid them with the proper host company.
Even though a regular website hosting account is typically set up automatically, there're always smaller setup jobs that are executed personally by the website hosting provider. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server usually takes more efforts because a lot of time is spent to install and set up the hardware and software platform, then test the machine in order to guarantee its proper operation before it's given to the customer. To be able to cover the amount of time spent on that, a large number of providers have an installation charge that you need to pay every time you order your new hosting package. In some cases, 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 website hosting plan features. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it can vary from a little to a significant amount of money depending upon the provider.
Setup Fee in Website Hosting
We never charge anything over the price of the website hosting
that you pick, which means that you won't have to pay any set-up costs or any kind of fees different from what you have already noticed on the main page. We think that being honest with our clients is of basic importance to developing a long-lasting business relationship, so we will never require that you pay concealed charges of any sort, particularly for something that's almost entirely automatic and usually takes several minutes to be completed by our platform. You will not pay installation charges even when you buy a number of accounts and they'll all be completely active straight away, so you are able to start creating your websites. The total amount of money that you'll need to pay for all of our plans is the same that you will find on our home page.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans do not have any sort of setup fees, so when you get your new account, the total fee for the first month is identical for the forthcoming renewals. As it takes us a couple of minutes to generate and activate a new semi-dedicated account, we think that it would not be justified to charge you a dime for that. You shall see the exact same amount on our front page, on the payment page as well as on your bank or PayPal statement and you won't ever have to pay any sort of extra fees. If you already have an ordinary shared website hosting account from our company and you want a more powerful solution, we will even transfer all of your content to the brand new semi-dedicated account free of charge.
