The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains which you can include within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a web site since this is where your data and emails are going to be. Since these are 2 separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans that we offer allow you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can choose what plan to acquire and how much to pay depending on your requirements. If you want to host more domain names later on than the amount the current package enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in one place, however, there is no limit for the number of domains you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting package that you have picked. You'll be able to decide if you'll host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, therefore it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a limited number of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia CP, which will give you full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative 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 address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server solution through our company, you can host as many domain names as you would like. You'll have your own server, therefore it is up to you how you will use its system resources. You will be able to register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with a different company. Because we provide three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you'll control all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every single domain name you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is practical if you want to give access to your domains to other people.
