The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that one could add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting part is what really permits you to have a site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. Since these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans feature a different number of domain addresses you can host in a single account. If you'd like to have one or a few websites, you do not need a lot of resources, so you do not have to purchase a very powerful package and you can pick a lower-end one. If you decide to have more sites at some point, you can always upgrade the whole plan or just the hosted domains feature of your current package - it will take just a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel to get this done. There is absolutely no limit on how many domain addresses you are able to register via our company and by selecting the most suitable plan, you can decide how many of them you'll actually host. If you already have domains that are registered using a different provider, you'll be able to host them here as well and use our web and e-mail hosting services for them.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a limited number of domains. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
If you get a virtual private server solution from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it is up to you how you will utilize its system resources. You can register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with a different company. Since we provide 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to 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 control all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you want to give access to the domains to other people.
