Despite of the fact that a standard cloud website hosting account is generally created automatically, there're always smaller setup jobs which are handled manually by the web hosting supplier. Setting up a virtual or a dedicated server requires even additional efforts because a lot of time is spent to install and configure the hardware and software setting, and then test the machine in order to warrant its proper operation prior to it being handed over to the end user. To help cover the amount of time spent on that, numerous suppliers have an installation fee that you need to pay when you order your new website hosting plan. Often, that charge won't appear prior to reaching the payment page and you won't notice it before that on the main page near the website hosting plan attributes. In the general case, this fee is one-time and it may vary from a small to a significant amount of money depending on the provider.
