Discover what set-up fees are and just what their purpose in the web hosting world is.
Any time you obtain a new website hosting account, your payment is processed, your account is set up and as automatic as the whole process seems, there're always small things that are done personally. For every virtual or a dedicated server there are even more jobs to be done considering that these forms of web hosting usually need a manual setup, software installation and configuration, testing the server environment to guarantee that everything's working fine, etc. To cover the expenses for the time and efforts all these tasks take, a lot of companies call for a one-time set-up charge to be paid by their clients in addition to the price for the shared website hosting. The charge in most cases is valid for any new hosting account being purchased and it's hardly ever listed on the company’s website, but it shows up on the checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Website Hosting
We never charge anything in addition to the cost of the shared website hosting plan
that you select, so you will not have to pay any set-up fees or any other costs except for what you have already found on the main page. We believe that being honest with our clients is of crucial importance to making a long-lasting business partnership, that's why we'll never expect you to pay concealed charges of any sort, especially for something that's almost fully automated and normally takes a couple of minutes to be performed by our platform. You will not pay set-up costs even if you buy multiple accounts and they will all be entirely active instantly, so you can start taking care of your websites. The total amount of money that you will need to pay for any of our packages is the same that you see on our main page.
Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, your first payment is identical to all the renewal payments for the next months. We do not have any kind of installation costs, or any obscured costs of any sort, for that matter. We appreciate a business partnership based upon mutual trust much more than a few extra dollars, therefore even if you have a shared hosting plan here and you'd like to move all of your data to a brand new semi-dedicated server, so as to acquire a more powerful website hosting alternative, we will do everything for you at no extra fee apart from the standard monthly cost for your brand new package. The installation of a semi-dedicated account is nearly fully automated, so we believe that charging you something for that would not be justified.
