The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that one could include within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services even though many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a site since this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Since these are two independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Web Hosting

The web hosting packages we provide allow you to host a different number of domains. That way, you can select what package to get and how much to pay according to your requirements. If you decide to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current package enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the whole plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to use the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers 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 prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit for the number of domain names that you can register/transfer as part of your account no matter the hosting package you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you will direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a limited number of domain names. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will give you full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private server solution from our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you want. You'll have your own server, so it's up to you how you will utilize its system resources. You can register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with a different company. Since we offer 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address 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're able to create a separate account for each and every domain name which you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
