The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that one can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two 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 name, the hosting aspect is what really allows you to have a site considering that this is where your files and e-mails will be. Because these are 2 different services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
One of the primary differences between our web hosting packages is the number of domain addresses that you can host in a single account. Having more domain addresses with working web sites for them means using additional server resources, so the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we provide you with the chance to pick a less expensive plan if you want to have just 1 or a couple of websites. In the same time, you can upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you will never be limited 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's your decision if you will also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domain names which you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore under your control how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other web hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you are going to host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS server solutions do not have any limit for the amount of domain addresses that you can host no matter the Control Panel that you pick throughout the process of ordering. With Hepsia, you'll be able to control all domain names in one place and any new domain that you register is going to be hosted automatically on the server without the need to do anything manually. If you get the VPS with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can select whether a number of domain names will be accommodated in one account or if each domain will be hosted in its own account as there is no limit how many independent accounts you can create with these two Control Panels. You're able to register new domains from the VPS billing area and choose the ones you intend to host and which ones to park and forward.
