The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that one can add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a web site since this is where your files and email messages will be. As these are 2 different services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

The cloud hosting plans we provide allow you to host a different number of domain names. That way, you can select what package to purchase and how much to pay according to your needs. If you want to host more domains at some point than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit for the number of domain names you can register/transfer in your account whatever the hosting plan you have selected. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you would like regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a fixed number of domains. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia CP, that will give you full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. If you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you want. You'll have your own server, so it's your choice how you will employ its system resources. You will be able to register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you have already registered with a different company. Since we provide three website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you'll control all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every domain address which you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you wish to allow access to the domains to other people.
