The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that one could add in the same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a web site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are 2 different services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans feature a different number of domains that one can host in a single account. If you want to have one or a few web sites, you won't need a lot of resources, so you do not have to pay for a very powerful package and you can start with a lower-end one. If you choose to have more websites later on, you can always upgrade your entire package or only the hosted domains function of your current package - it's going to take only a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting CP to get this done. There is no limit how many domain names you'll be able to register via our company and by selecting the most suitable plan, you can choose how many of them you'll actually host. If you already have domain names that are registered using a different provider, you'll be able to host them with us as well and use our web and e mail hosting services for them.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want regardless of whether 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 quite powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domain names. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control 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 Servers
With our VPS web hosting plans you'll get a lot of system resources readily available and since you're going to have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you wish. You can pick from 3 web hosting Control Panels throughout the signup procedure and depending on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you select our custom Hepsia CP, all domain addresses hosted on the server are going to be handled collectively through a single account and freshly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll 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 give access to a given domain to a third party without giving them access to the whole server or other domains hosted on it.
