Although a regular shared hosting account is usually created automatically, there are still small configuration jobs that are done personally by the website hosting service provider. The set up of a virtual or a dedicated server usually requires more efforts since a lot of time is spent to install and configure the software and hardware platform, then test the machine so as to warrant its proper functioning prior to it being given to the customer. To help cover the amount of time spent on that, many providers have a set-up charge that you need to pay any time you obtain your brand new hosting plan. In some cases, that fee won't appear prior to reaching the payment page and you won't see it before that on your main page near the website hosting plan attributes. In the general case, this cost is one-time and it may vary from a little to a significant amount of money depending on the company.

Setup Fee in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan via us, the end price that you'll need to pay through the checkout is exactly the same as the one you have already noticed on the home page or on every other page on our web site. The processing of your payment and the account creation on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform are close to completely automatic, so we believe that charging you any kind of installation fees is rather unreasonable. Even when you acquire several accounts at a time, you won't need to spend any money for the setup or for any other kind of hidden fees for that matter. It's our principle that being honest with each client since the beginning is way more important than receiving a few extra dollars.

Setup Fee in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans don't have any kind of setup charges, so if you obtain your new account, your total fee for the very first month will be exactly the same as for the future renewals. As it takes us a few min to set up and activate your new semi-dedicated account, we believe that it wouldn't be right to charge you a dime for that. You will see the exact same amount on our home page, on the payment page and on your bank or PayPal statement and you won't ever be required to pay any kind of extra charges. If you have a regular shared website hosting account with our company and you want a more powerful alternative, we can even relocate all your data to the new semi-dedicated account without charge.
