The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one could include in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what really enables you to have a website as this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
The web hosting packages that we provide allow you to host a different amount of domain names. In this way, you can choose what package to acquire and how much to pay according to your needs. If you choose to host more domain addresses later on than the amount the current package permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit for the number of domain names you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting package which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you would like regardless of whether 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 can handle is quite high, therefore it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a fixed amount of domain addresses. The accounts are managed through the Hepsia Control Panel, which will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain names. In case you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
Our Linux VPS web hosting packages can be used to host unrestricted number of domains irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering procedure. You'll have ample system resources available, 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 each and every domain and we do not have a set limit for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses are going to be managed through one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may very well be more convenient if you do not need to give access to a certain domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to control the domains that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain that you register via Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterwards.
