The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting element is what really allows you to have a website because this is where your files and emails are going to be. As these are two independent 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 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 to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
Through our shared web hosting you'll be able to host a different number of domain names, no matter whether you register them with our company or through any other company. If you host just a few domains, you will probably use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be cheaper. If you choose to add more domains in your account later on, you can add more slots through your website hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and employ the added resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades takes only a few clicks and is activated immediately. As registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there's no limit on the number of domains you are able to register no matter the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain names. 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 Servers
If you buy a VPS server solution from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you have already registered with another company. Because we offer 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for each domain which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is practical if you wish to give access to the domains to other people.
