Registering a domain name and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are in fact 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domain addresses that one could accommodate in the same hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your websites will function in exactly the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting plans we provide permit you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to spend according to your requirements. If you choose to host more domain names later on than the amount the current package enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to use the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit for the amount of domain names which you can register/transfer within your account regardless of the hosting package that you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any limit on the amount of the domain names you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's your choice how many domain names you will add and how you will use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled using our custom Hepsia hosting CP which will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with other web hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain names you'll be able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS plans can be employed to host unrestricted amount of domain addresses regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering procedure. You will get an abundance of system resources at your disposal, so you can choose how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create an independent hosting account for every domain and we don't have a restriction for the amount of accounts you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia CP, all domain names shall be controlled through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may be more convenient if you do not need to grant access to a certain domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domains that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain address you register using Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
