The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what really enables you to have a website considering that this is where your files and email messages will be. Because these are two separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared hosting solutions is the number of domains you can host in one account. Having more domain addresses with functioning web sites for them usually means using more server resources, hence the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we give you the option to pick a less expensive plan if you want to have just one or a couple of sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you'll also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will 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 given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, therefore it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a fixed amount of domain addresses. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
Our VPS web hosting can be employed to host unrestricted number of domains regardless of the hosting CP that you pick during the ordering procedure. You will have an abundance of system resources to use, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create an individual hosting account for every single domain address and we do not have a restriction for the number of accounts you can create. If you select our Hepsia CP, all domain names are going to be handled using a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may be more convenient if you don't need to provide access to a certain domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domain addresses that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain that you register via Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
