Registering a domain and hosting one is commonly mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are in fact 2 separate services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domain names you can accommodate in the same web hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way regardless of whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website unless you host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
The shared web hosting solutions we offer enable you to host a different amount of domain names. This way, you can choose what plan to purchase and how much to pay based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domains later on than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade your entire plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you choose to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in one place, however, there is no limit for the number of domain addresses you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting package which you have chosen. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the amount of the domain names that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is your choice how many domain names you'll add and how you will employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server solution from our company, you can host as many domain names as you like. You'll have your own server, so it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses from the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with a different company. Because we offer you three website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for each domain which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you would like to provide access to the domains to other people.
