Registering a domain and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They're in fact two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain addresses that you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain names are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting solutions we offer allow you to host a different number of domain names. In this way, you can choose what package to get and how much to pay in accordance with your needs. If you want to host more domains in the future than the amount the current package permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit for the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer in your account whatever the hosting plan that you have chosen. 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
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, we have now decided not to set any limit on the number of the domains which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's your choice how many domains you will add and how you will employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our custom Hepsia web hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other web hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domains you are able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server solution from our company, you can host as many domain addresses as you like. You will have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will use its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with another company. Since we offer three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you will handle all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each and every domain address you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you would like to provide access to your domains to other people.
