The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains that you can add in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what actually enables you to have a web site considering that this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain address 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 using the same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared website hosting plans is the number of domain addresses that you can host in a single account. Having more domain names with working web sites for them means using additional server resources, hence the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. That way, we give you the possibility to select a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a couple of sites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains within your existing account, so you'll never be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains through the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are really powerful, we have decided not to place any limit on the number of the domain addresses that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domains you are going to add and how you'll employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you are going to host inside the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS

Our VPS services can be used to host unlimited domain names regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering procedure. You will have plenty of resources to use, so you can choose how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create an individual hosting account for each and every domain and we do not have a restriction for the amount of accounts you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses will be handled using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you do not need to give access to a specific domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to manage the domain names that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain name which you register using Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterwards.
