The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names which you can include within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a website since this is where your files and e-mails will be. Since these are 2 separate services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
Using our web hosting plans you can host a different number of domains, no matter whether you register them through our company or through any other service provider. In the event you host only a couple of domain names, you'll probably use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be cheaper. If you choose to add more domain addresses to your account later on, you can add more slots via your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the additional system resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades requires just a few mouse clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there is no limit on the number of domains you'll be able to register whatever the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, so it would not add up to be able to host a limited number of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia CP, which will give you total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to handle a couple of domains. If you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS plans can be used to host unlimited domain addresses regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering process. You will have plenty of resources to use, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create an independent hosting account for each domain name and we don't have a restriction for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names shall be managed using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may be more convenient if you do not need to give access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domain addresses that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain you register through Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
