Registering a domain name and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They're in fact 2 different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domain addresses which you could accommodate within the same website hosting account and have site files and emails for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way regardless if the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website unless you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting solutions that we provide allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. In this way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to spend according to your needs. If you want to host more domain names at some point than the number the current plan permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so that you can direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit on the number of domain addresses which you can register/transfer within your account regardless of the hosting plan you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated packages are very powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of the domains that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, it is therefore up to you how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one place, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no restriction how many domains you are able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you will host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting can be used to host unrestricted number of domain addresses regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering process. You'll get ample system resources to use, so you can choose how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create a separate hosting account for each and every domain and we don't have a set limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names shall be managed from a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you do not need to give access to a particular domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain address that you register through Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterwards.
