Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They're in fact 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domain addresses that one could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your websites will work in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
The web hosting packages we provide enable you to host a different number of domains. That way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to spend depending on your requirements. If you decide to host more domains later on than the amount the current package permits you to, you can quickly upgrade the whole plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 spot, however, there is no limit for the amount of domains that you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting package you have chosen. You'll be able to decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated packages are quite powerful, we have now decided not to place any restriction on the number of the domain names that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's under your control how many domains you'll add and how you'll employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled through our custom Hepsia website hosting CP which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other web hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domain names you'll be able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you'll host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you like. You'll have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You will be able to register new domains through the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with another company. Since we offer you 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll 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 name which you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you want to give access to the domains to other people.
