The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domains that one can add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting part is what really enables you to have a site because this is where your data and emails are going to be. Because these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
One of the differences between our shared website hosting plans is the number of domain addresses that you can host in one account. Owning more domain addresses with working sites for them usually means using additional server system resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you want to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the possibility to pick a more affordable plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains using the parking feature.
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 would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, so it would not make sense to be able to host a limited amount of domain addresses. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domain names. In case you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our virtual private server packages don't have any restriction for the number of domains you are able to host regardless of the Control Panel that you choose during the ordering process. With Hepsia, you'll be able to manage all domain names in one location and any new domain that you register will be hosted automatically on the server with no need to do anything manually. If you get the VPS with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can choose whether a number of domain addresses are going to be accommodated within one account or if each and every domain is going to be hosted in its own account since there's no limit how many independent accounts you can create by using these two Control Panels. You're able to register new domains from the VPS billing area and decide which of them you would like to host and which ones to park and forward.
