The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you could add within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. Since these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting packages you are able to host a different number of domain names, regardless of whether you register them with our company or with some other provider. If you host just a few domain names, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be more affordable. If you choose to add more domain addresses in your account later on, you can add additional slots using your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and use the added system resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades will take just a few clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domain names you can register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domain names you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's your decision how many domains you are going to add and how you'll use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages can be used to host unlimited domain names irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering procedure. You are going to have ample system resources available, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create an independent hosting account for each and every domain name and we do not have a set limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains are going to be controlled from a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option might be more convenient if you don't need to give access to a certain domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to control the domain addresses that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain address that you register using Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterward.
