Companies nowadays are charging only for the dedicated IP address or management of VPS or Dedicated server etc.

However, you may also charge clients to restore the backup from your backup archives(daily, weekly, monthly).

Probably because people are sick of "nickel and diming". I honestly rather pay a higher premium and get what I need done. Rather than having to pay for "this", "that", and "this".

Don't forget it also depends if you are selling barebone systems, in which case there is an extra fee for everything: cPanel/WHM, WHMCS, OSs, management, installations, etc.

I thought I replied to this, it must have been a very similar thread on WHT.

I charge for Dedicated IP's, Fast-Track Support & Site Management.

If you are selling VPS and Dedicated servers then unless you have pre configured plans then everything is added as an addon, as the buyer may just want a barebone server.
If you are selling shared and reseller plans than everything is included in the plan price

We charge for dedicated IP's. Not that dedicated IP's are really needed anymore in a shared environment. We also don't offer them publicly any more...

Apart from that, the usual things such as extra space or bandwidth. Paid SSL's from places like Comodo or the Symantec group (sometimes GlobalSign). We still get people wanting those despite Let's Encrypt and AutoSSL being offered on all of our servers.

True with SNI and AutoSSL and Lets encrypt, but if you speak to SSL providers (not resellers, but the actual CAs) they still prefer a Ded IP for SSL certs as it makes the site more secure.
