What are set-up fees and what is their function in the realm of web hosting?
Despite of the fact that a regular shared web hosting account is typically set up automatically, there are still some setup tasks which are done manually by the web hosting service provider. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server needs even additional efforts due to the fact that a lot of time is spent to install and set up the software and hardware platform, and after that test the server so as to ensure its proper functioning prior to it being handed over to the end user. In order to cover the time spent on that, many providers have an installation charge that you are required to pay every time you acquire your brand new web hosting plan. Often, that fee won't appear before you reach the payment page and you will not see it before that on your main page next to the hosting package attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it will vary from a little to a significant amount of money depending on the supplier.
Setup Fee in VPS Servers
Despite the fact that installing a VPS server
takes time and efforts, we will never ask you for any installation fees even when you obtain a couple of servers at one time. When you register, you will need to pay only the standard monthly cost for the chosen package and we'll assemble your VPS, set up its OS, web hosting Control Panel and software package (web server, MySQL, FTP) at no additional cost. The renewal fees for the next months are exactly the same as the original signup fee. We are aware that having another client who puts his / her trust in us is way more important than getting a modest one-time charge, so if you acquire a virtual server through our company, you will never find any hidden fees.
Setup Fee in Dedicated Servers
Our dedicated servers
do not have any setup or other concealed charges. Through the signup process, you shall pay just the monthly rate for the package that you've selected. As soon as you place your order, we will put together and test your new machine, then we'll set up all of the software that you need so as to have a completely functional server - Operating System, web hosting Control Panel when you have chosen one, web server, MySQL, and so on. All of these duties are a part of the package and they are provided completely free, therefore the signup payment and all your forthcoming renewal payments will be exactly the same. If the server is equipped with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you have a shared website hosting account through our company, we can even move your content on the server without charge.
