The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you could include in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services even though many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact allows you to have a site as this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Since these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared web hosting solutions is the number of domain addresses that you can host in a single account. Owning more domains with working websites for them means employing additional server system resources, so the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the possibility to choose a more affordable plan if you wish to have just one or a couple of websites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server that we offer you comes with unlimited hosted domains. Regardless of whether you register a number of domain names here or you already have them through another service provider, you can add them in the account on our end with only a couple of clicks. If you choose to obtain a new domain address from our company, it will even be hosted automatically inside the account, so you'll not need to do anything else but start working on the site for it. All of the hosted domain names can be handled easily in one place using our Hepsia Control Panel. On the other hand, if you use rival Control Panels, you will be able to register a domain through one system and host it through another, not mentioning you must switch between several accounts to manage a couple of domain names. As a result, Hepsia can save you efforts and time whenever you manage your hosted domain addresses.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans can be used to host unlimited domains regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering process. You will get an abundance of resources at your disposal, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create an independent hosting account for every single domain address and we don't have a set limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names are going to be managed using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain name that you register through Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterwards.
