The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that one could add in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are 2 separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just 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 address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
One of the main differences between our website hosting packages is the number of domains you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with active websites for them means using additional server resources, so the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we give you the chance to select a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just one or a couple of web sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll never be restricted 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 up to you if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated service are quite powerful, we've decided not to place any restriction on the number of the domain names that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, so it is under your control how many domain addresses you will add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you will host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers you will get a lot of resources readily available and since you'll have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain names as you wish. You can choose among 3 hosting Control Panels during the registration procedure and based on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, all domains hosted on the server are going to be handled together using one account and freshly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create a separate account for every domain and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may be more convenient when you have to give access to a specific domain to a third party without granting them access to the entire server or other domains hosted on it.
