Discover what set-up fees are in the website hosting world and how you can avoid them with the right web host.
When you obtain a new web hosting account, your monthly payment is processed, the account is created and as automated as the entire process may seem, there're always small things that are conducted manually. For your virtual or a dedicated server there're even more things to be done since these types of website hosting generally require a manual assembly, software installation & configuration, testing the server platform in order to ensure that all things are working the way it should, etc. To cover the cost for the time and efforts all these duties take, many companies require a one-time installation charge to be paid by their clients in addition to the charge for the shared web hosting. The charge in most cases applies to any new website hosting account being bought and it's rarely given on the company’s site, still it would appear on your checkout page.
Setup Fee in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages don't have any kind of setup fees or any other obscured fees as a general rule. When you purchase an account, we'll process your transaction at once and the account will be generated and activated from our system without delay. The full cost that you will need to pay for your hosting plan is identical all around - on the home, order and payment pages, and you won't notice or have to pay anything on top of that cost anytime. This is valid even if you order a number of accounts since it's our understanding that creating trust is far more important than receiving a couple of more dollars. Your account activation is instant, therefore you can go ahead and start setting up your sites right away.
