The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names that you can add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 completely different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting part is what really enables you to have a web site since this is where your files and emails will be. Since these are 2 separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting packages that we offer permit you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can select what package to acquire and how much to spend according to your requirements. If you choose to host more domains in the future than the amount the current package enables you to, you can quickly upgrade your entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to use the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one place, however, there is no limit on the number of domain names that you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting plan that you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you'll host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, so it would not sound right to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia CP, that will provide you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to handle a couple of domains. If you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
With our Linux VPS hosting packages you're going to get plenty of system resources readily available and since you'll have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You can select from 3 website hosting Control Panels throughout the registration procedure and depending on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our in-house made Hepsia CP, all domain names hosted on the server will be handled together via one account and newly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for every domain address and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may just be more convenient when you have to provide access to a certain domain to a third party without giving them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
