The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domains that one could add within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting aspect is what really permits you to have a web site since this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. As these are 2 different services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
One of the main differences between our hosting plans is the number of domains which you can host in one account. Having more domains with functioning websites for them usually means employing more server system resources, hence the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we provide you with the opportunity to choose a more affordable plan if you want to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names within your existing account, so you'll never be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are really powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the amount of the domains that 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 under your control how many domain addresses you will add and how you will use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it's for you to decide how you will use its system resources. You'll be able to register new domains via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with another company. Because we provide three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives 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 location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for each and every domain that you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you'd like to give access to your domains to other people.
