The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you could include within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting part is what really permits you to have a web site as this is where your data and email messages will be. Since these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting

The shared web hosting solutions that we offer enable you to host a different number of domain names. That way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to spend in accordance with your needs. If you want to host more domain addresses at some point than the number the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to employ the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit on the amount of domains that you can register/transfer in your account whatever the hosting package you have selected. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server solution from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you like. You'll have your own server, therefore it's up to you how you will use its system resources. You'll be able to register new domain names from the billing account of your VPS or add domain names which you have already registered with another company. Because we provide 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to 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 can create a separate account for each and every domain name which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you want to provide access to your domains to other people.
