The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a website because this is where your files and e-mails will be. Since these are 2 separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting packages you will be able to host a different amount of domain names, regardless of whether you register them through our company or through an alternative company. In case you host just a few domains, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you want to add more domain names to your account eventually, you can add extra slots via your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and employ the additional system resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades requires just a couple of clicks and is activated right away. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there's no limit on the number of domains you'll be able to register no matter the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a fixed amount of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia CP, which will give you full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domains. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
Our virtual private server plans don't have any restriction for the amount of domain names you can host regardless of the Control Panel that you choose during the process of ordering. With Hepsia, you'll be able to manage all domains in one location and any new domain that you register will be hosted automatically on the server without the need to do anything manually. If you get the VPS with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can choose if a number of domain addresses will be accommodated in a single account or if every domain will be hosted in its own account since there's no restriction how many individual accounts you can create using these two Control Panels. You can register new domains via the VPS billing area and select which of them you intend to host and which ones to park and forward.
