Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by many people to be the same thing. These are in reality two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website files and e-mails for them. Your websites will work in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain names 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 allow you to have a website unless you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the data from that account.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

One of the primary differences between our hosting solutions is the number of domain names you can host in a single account. Owning more domains with active websites for them means employing more server resources, so the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the chance to select a less expensive plan if you wish to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain addresses in your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you will also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of the domain addresses you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore under your control how many domain names you'll add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host in the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS hosting plans can be used to host unrestricted amount of domain addresses regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering process. You'll get ample system resources at your disposal, so you can decide 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 amount of accounts that you can create. If you choose our Hepsia CP, all domain names will be controlled through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option might be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domains that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain name that you register via Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterwards.
