The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domains which you can add within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a web site because this is where your files and emails will be. Because these are 2 independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the primary differences between our shared hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses you can host in one account. Owning more domain addresses with active websites for them means using more server system resources, hence the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the possibility to pick a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just 1 or several sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase 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 restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
With our Linux VPS web hosting you will get plenty of system resources for your use and since you are going to have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you wish. You can choose from three hosting Control Panels through the registration process and depending on your choice there are two different options. If you choose our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses hosted on the server are going to be managed together via one account and freshly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you are going to be able to create a separate account for each domain and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may just be more convenient if you want to provide access to a given domain to a third party without granting them access to the whole server or other domains hosted on it.
