If you obtain a new Linux shared package, it is generated on a server and the overall process typically takes a while, not mentioning the validation and processing of your payment, which many companies make personally. When you order a dedicated server, for example, the installation takes more time as the machine needs to be built, installed and tried in order to warrant that it'll operate properly. This is the reason why a lot of providers have a one-time fee to cover the time and efforts spent on your brand new account. The cost, which can sometimes be quite high, is often not listed on the main page, still you'll notice it on the checkout or payment page, which means that you will not be aware of it before you have already gone through the whole signup process and you can even miss it if you do not pay attention.
Setup Fee in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting package from us, the final price that you need to pay during the checkout will be identical to the cost you've already viewed on the main page as well as on every other page on our web site. The payment processing as well as the account creation on our powerful cloud hosting platform are close to fully automatic, that's why we think that charging you any installation costs whatsoever is rather unreasonable. Even when you obtain several accounts at one time, you won't need to spend any money for their setup or for any other hidden fees for that matter. It's our principle that being honest with each and every customer since the beginning is much more important than acquiring a few extra dollars.
