The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that you can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a web site since this is where your data and emails are going to be. Since these are 2 independent services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the differences between our shared hosting plans is the number of domain addresses which you can host within a single account. Owning more domain names with active sites for them means employing additional server resources, so the more domains you want to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we offer you the chance to choose a cheaper plan if you wish to have just one or several sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your decision if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains using the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages permit you to host an unrestricted number of domain addresses by default, not by demand or after a costly upgrade. We have made sure that the feature matches the computing power of the plans simply because it does not sound right to have a lot of resources and be able to use them just for a small number of domain names. In case you register a new domain address using our company, it will be hosted in your account automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually after that to link it to the account. If you decide to host a domain, which is registered via a different company, you can do so with a few mouse clicks and you can see the name servers that you need in your Hepsia Control Panel. The latter was created specifically for multi-domain hosting, so you'll be able to manage all hosted domain names from one place with ease. You can forget about going through different systems and accounts as you would have to do with other Control Panels.

Hosted Domains in VPS

If you buy a virtual private server package from our company, you're able to host as many domains as you like. You'll have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You'll be able to register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with a different company. Because we provide three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you'll control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every single domain you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you would like to allow access to the domains to other people.
