The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains which you could include within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting element is what really allows you to have a site as this is where your data and emails will be. Because these are two separate services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

The cloud web hosting solutions that we offer allow you to host a different amount of domains. That way, you can choose what plan to acquire and how much to pay based on your needs. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to use the registration services of another 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 CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain addresses which you can register/transfer inside your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have chosen. Then you can decide if you will host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, we have now decided not to set any restriction on the amount of the domain addresses that you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore under your control how many domains you'll add and how you'll employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our custom Hepsia web hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domains you can register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host inside the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server plan through our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you wish. You'll have your own server, so it is up to you how you will employ its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with another company. Since we provide three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain which you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to provide access to the domains to other people.
