The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting part is what actually permits you to have a website as this is where your data and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two independent services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the differences between our shared hosting solutions is the number of domain names you can host in a single account. Having more domain addresses with functioning web sites for them means employing additional server system resources, therefore, the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you will 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's your choice if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our Linux semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any restriction on the amount of the domain addresses you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's up to you how many domain addresses you will add and how you'll employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our custom Hepsia website hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers can be employed to host unrestricted amount of domain names regardless of the hosting CP that you choose during the ordering process. You will have plenty of resources available, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create a separate hosting account for every single domain address and we do not have a limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you pick our Hepsia CP, all domains shall be handled from 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 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 domains that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain address which you register using Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterwards.
