The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domains which you can add within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 completely different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a website as this is where your data and email messages will be. Since these are two independent services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses which you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with functioning sites for them means employing additional server resources, hence the more domain addresses you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we provide you with the option to choose a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or a couple of sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names within your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll 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 have decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is quite high, so it would not make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS

With our Linux VPS you're going to get a lot of resources at your disposal and since you will have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you want. You can pick among 3 hosting Control Panels through the registration process and depending on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names hosted on the server will be managed together through one account and newly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain address and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second option may just be more convenient if you want to grant access to a given domain to a third party without granting them access to the whole server or other domains hosted on it.
