The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains that you could add within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting aspect is what in fact allows you to have a website since this is where your data and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting packages that we offer allow you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can pick what package to buy and how much to pay according to your needs. If you decide to host more domain names at some point than the number the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you decide to employ the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so that you can direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit on the number of domains which you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting package which you have chosen. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, therefore it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a fixed number of domain addresses. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia CP, which will give you full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like. You will have your own server, so it is your choice how you will utilize its system resources. You can register new domain addresses from the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you have already registered with a different company. Since we offer 3 hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every single domain address which you want to host on the server. The last option is helpful if you would like to give access to your domains to other people.
