Registering a domain and hosting one is often mistaken by many people to be the same thing. These are in fact two different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domain addresses which you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and e-mails for them. Your websites will function in precisely the same way regardless if 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 grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the primary differences between our shared hosting solutions is the number of domains you can host within a single account. Having more domain addresses with functioning websites for them usually means employing additional server system resources, therefore, the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the chance to pick a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or several websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses within your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any restriction on the amount of the domains you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it is under your control how many domains you are going to add and how you will employ the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our custom Hepsia web hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other website hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server solution through our company, you're able to host as many domains as you like. You will have your own server, so it is your choice how you will use its system resources. You will be able to register new domains through the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you have already registered with a different company. Because we offer 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll manage all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every domain which you want to host on the server. The last option is practical if you wish to allow access to your domains to other people.
