The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one can include within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of 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 enables you to have a website because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are two independent services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting solutions we offer allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. In this way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to pay in accordance with your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the number the current plan enables you to, you can quickly upgrade your entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll 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 area of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in one location, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan you have chosen. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domains that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it is under your control how many domain addresses you will add and how you'll employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domains you can register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you are going to host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages can be used to host unrestricted amount of domain names regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering process. You will get an abundance of system resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create an independent hosting account for each and every domain and we do not have a limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you select our Hepsia CP, all domain names will be managed through one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you don't need to give access to a particular domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to manage the domain addresses that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain name that you register through Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually after that.
