Registering a domain name and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They are in fact 2 separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain names you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your sites will function in exactly the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site until you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting solutions we provide enable you to host a different amount of domains. In this way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to pay based on your needs. If you decide to host more domains in the future than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you want 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 on the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting plan you have chosen. You'll be able to decide if you'll host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages can be employed to host unrestricted number of domains regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you select during the ordering procedure. You will have an abundance of system resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create an independent hosting account for each and every domain address and we don't have a limit for the number of accounts you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses shall be managed using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option might be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a particular domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domains that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain address you register via Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
